I stumbled on the instagram of Blooms in the Air, and have to say that I am not one who is too easily impressed by flowers that aren’t real. But these paper flowers are stunning.

Nosing around some more, I saw this oh-too-perfect gift for mother’s day that combines a peony with shortbread cookies from Matchbox Kitchen. Yes, please! Perfect! Oh, no! Turns out they’re all sold out.

Do not fear, I discovered this interview with Ji Kim, the creator behind Blooms in the Air. She shares instructions on how to make your very own peony. I so appreciate the beautiful work of a talented craftsperson, and inspired even more by the openness to share the how-to. I am going to attempt to make mom a peony! The good thing is I know she’s is going to like it even if it’s not as beautiful as Ji’s, because that’s what moms do.
