Origami Flowers as a New Flower Trend?

As people become more concerned with the non-organic flower growing and harvesting practises worldwide and the costs of buying flowers in terms of globabl warming impacts, we predict there may be a surge of interest in origami flower making.

Origami has been a popular art form in Japan for over a thousand years. Origami flowers last a long time and bring beauty to any room. Here is a bouquet of origami flowers from Lisa's Handmade Origami Creations.

You can also buy books on how to create origami flowers. The book shown here is Origami Flowers: Popular Blossoms and Creative Bouquetsand it's recently available in English on Amazon.
