Paper Flower Gramophone Tutorial
This vintage reproduction gramophone transforms into an even more beautiful home décor accent, when it’s filled with delicate paper flowers and curls of vintage music sheets.
These exquisite paper flowers were created using the Pansy Flower and Romance Flower dies with the Sizzix Big Shot die cutting machine. Scrapbook papers in deep reds and creamy ivory were used, as well as embossed sheets of solid paper. Miniature filler flowers were made using repurposed coffee filters, and all of the flowers are attached to a rustic green wrapped floral wire sourced at a local design warehouse.
The flowers feature brilliant gold tone button centers, as well as rhinestone gems. The stems are curled into coils and sculptural curves, simulating the movement of live blooms on vines. Vintage music sheets are curled and layered in voluminous piles to the very center of the horn, and they unfurl over the front of the horn, spilling out their sweet notes in a visual display that is both charming and nostalgic.
Placed near a Christmas tree, or displayed on a shelf, this vintage gramophone is a decorator’s delight, and a perfect gift idea for the modern vintage décor enthusiast.
