"I spend hours looking for the perfect books — thrift stores and yard sales — I even pick up old, unwanted books from the library that would otherwise be thrown away."

A personal project sparked Krista's interest in the art of paper floristry — she started making flowers from the pages of vintage books and, soon enough, she was getting requests left and right. Always one to pay attention to the tiniest of details, she scours thrift stores and yard sales for the perfect books, cutting the pages carefully by hand (that's right, no templates here) and assembling them with just as much care. And Krista's pretty picky, too. She examines each flower before sending 'em off, tossing the ones that don't pass inspection. We're mostly glad they don't require watering.
