a little bit of miniature flowers

My in-laws gave me this neat set: Mini Origami Flowers by Joost Langeveld...

...and I made a little cluster of roses.

It was surprisingly easy (my past efforts at origami have been less than impressive), and looks really sweet.  I liked that the paper was provided--this meant I could get going on a set right away, rather than waiting to go buy some origami paper.  Now I have flowers that will not set a chain reaction of sniffles, itchy eyes, scratchy throats, and empty boxes of tissues and hand sanitizer and a shortage of cough drops.

(Yeah, that's why we had silk flowers in our wedding.  They were also gorgeous, thanks to the sweet (and affordable!) creative florist at A Touch of Elegance.)
