Origami Roses

I spotted these beautiful origami roses over at Folding Trees, and even though they look a little complicated, I think that they would be a fun weekend project once you get the hang of making them. Folding tutorials for three types of roses — the Bird Base Rose (top), the Standard Rose (middle), and the Kawasaki Rose (bottom) — are included over at Bloomize. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Dahlia Press

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my virtual stroll through the portfolio of the recently launched website for Dahlia Press, a Seattle, Washington based letterpress shop run by designer Stephanie Clarke-Beedle.

Dahlia Press focuses on simpicity and quality in their designs, which is evident in a portfolio filled with beautiful letterpress invitations, business cards, wedding suites, and greetings. You can purchase ready to order letterpress greeting cards at the Dahlia Press Etsy shop, and here’s a peek at some of their custom work:

DIY Bridesmaids Cards

These DIY Bridesmaids Cards by Anna Bond (Rifle Design) for Once Wed make me wish that I had an upcoming wedding. Such a wonderfully cute idea, and one that doesn’t look too difficult, either. I have to admit that I’m swooning over the calligraphy work on the envelope and the card, as well:

Present & Correct Library Notebooks

There’s just something about any type of book with a library pocket in the back, don’t you think? Present & Correct hasn’t missed a detail with their new Library Notebooks, which feature handprinted wrap around covers in two “titles”, Basic Robot Engineering by Ann Droid and An Encyclopaedia of Poisons by R.C. Nick. I love it! The notebooks also include a library ticket and pocket, where you can keep notes, receipts, extra stamps, or what have you.

Hollin & Eric Wedding Invitations

I cannot get enough of these sweet, custom illustrated wedding invitations. Hello! Lucky designer Anna Hurley created this awesome wedding suite for couple Hollin & Eric. I love that they had a Dessert Festival for those who weren’t able to attend the actual wedding. The little illustrations of pies, cupcakes, and cakes is too cute! See more images, including hand drawn and screen printed coffee and tea bag favors created by the maid of honor, from Hollin & Eric’s wedding over at the Hello! Lucky blog.
