Iron Craft 2015 Challenge #11--Paper Playbill Bouquet

For Challenge #11 we were asked to create something out of paper or in the words of our leader--find your inner Dr Russ. Oh. My. Gosh. The pressure to produce something special really hit me hard (just kidding). The only other difficulty is that we were in the middle of the theater awards season here in NYC and the show that is currently at my theater has been nominated numerous times. Three of our actors were nominated for a Tony Award (the highest honor in the on-stage professional theater profession). I wanted to do something special for them so I created these paper bouquets out of the show's Playbills (the free programs that are given to the patrons at each performance).

I folded, curled and molded several different types of flowers out of the most colorful pages and gave a bouquet to each of the nominated performers.

Kusudama Flowers 
Curled leaves (and the underside)
 I am very happy with the way these turned out. The actors were very appreciative. I just hope that my Iron Craft crafters like them.

I bet they loved them! And am I right, did one of your actors win?

We certainly do! I love that each bouquet is individual and special. What a lovely thing to do.

@Kat--Yes. Christian Borle won in his category.
