There is strange electricity in the air these days… not just the dry static but the creative kind. Art is oozing from every corner, canvases, etsy and blogs. People are designing like they care a damn. These are great times.
To keep the tempo going, here is my free blog giveaway for the creative souls who want to make something special for their homes.A solid color handmade box with recycled paper that holds inspiration within.
Open the box and what do you see?
About 20 handpicked dried woodroses, including buds and flowers from my place. They are delicate, exotic, long-lasting, down-to-earth and can be made into many lovely things.
What are Wood Roses?
They say that the botanical name for wood rose is Merremia tuberosa. It is creeper/ climber/ vine that grows like crazy in a short span of time and flowers only when is has firmly established its presence. While the fresh flowers are bright yellow, the dried ones are richly colored in shades of mahogany, brown, beige and tans. Each dried flower cracks open to reveal 4 seeds. These flowers are fragile but last for years. And these flowers are lovely.
What’s the catch?
This is not a sweepstakes contest or promotion giveaway. It is simply a gift for those who want to create. You only have to want it so much that it will be yours.
I have two boxes full of delicate wood roses, packed carefully, ready for dispatch. Also note that the sturdy box is plain/ not branded and can be re-used for storage.
You have to create something out of these roses and share it with me so that I know you indeed made a good use of these beautiful roses. You need to share your photos of your creative project. It is this simple.
How do I get my free giveaway?
Just let me know and I will give it to you in a week’s time. If too many people ask, allow me the liberty to pick out the lucky two.
PS: While you leave your comment here, please do not provide your personal/ contact details in this form below. I will contact you with the email id you have provided here.
In case you missed your chance, I might be gladly compelled to make another box for you. Nothing makes me happier than seeing these wood roses come alive in some art lover’s home.
Here are some ideas and inspiration for you to create something new. You can do anything with it… make an enchanting woodroses wreath, dress up your dinner table, adorn your candles, or simply place them where it touches your heart… these lovely dried flowers stay for as long as you care.
But then, surprise me! Inspire me!
Now, do you want this box?
