Every once in awhile when I’m looking for endangered flowers I’ll come across one that takes my breath away. The Virginia spiraea is one of those flowers. I had to come up with a number of innovations to translate this amazing flower into paper, from wooden bead buds to sewing thread stamen. This unique flower is so adorable I just had to share it with you.
