Here is my submission for the papercraft challenge

A vase of very fragile Irises and butterfly.

As soon as I saw this challenge I knew exactly what to make - which by the way didn't work out Angry cause the music I am using is soooooo old and the paper is very very fragile.  So I adapted a bit - Irises instead of roses.  I found the music book which is -  Symphonien von L Van Beethoven fur Pianoforte - if anyone understands that.  In a second hand shop.  No idea of age but paper is quite thick, it folded easily enough but continued stress on some folds saw the paper just voluntarily tearing.  The book was falling apart and missing pages so do not fret that I have ruined anything

My camera has gone kapput and had to use my mum's, which was like a foriegn object in my hands so only one pic turned out decent.  Hopefully when my camera comes back from the shop I can post better close up pics.

Thanks for looking

Wow! That is impressive! The irises I think show up clearer in the photo than roses would, which is an added bonus for us spectators.  Smiley
