2. How was Ta Muchly Paper Blooms born? How did you start?
I’ve always had an interest in paper crafts, and have been running a sister company to Ta Muchly Paper Blooms called Ta Muchly for several years. Ta Muchly focuses on handmade papercut city maps, prints, and travel gifts, you guessed it – all made from paper!
During the early days of designing paper products for Ta Muchly, I stumbled across paper flowers and decided to give it a try. I watched one YouTube video, headed to my local craft store to buy supplies, and then started creating. I was instantly hooked, and I’ve been making paper flowers ever since!
I spent a long time teaching myself how to make various different paper blooms, perfecting each one and remaking it many times until I was happy with the design. Then I decided it was time to start sharing those designs with others, and what better way than with a YouTube channel, the exact same was as I started out!
I now have lots of tutorials and advice for begginer paper florists on the channel, as well as templates to download from my website, including some freebies!
3. What makes Ta Muchly Paper Blooms different? Can you explain your products with details?
I love teaching others how to make their own paper flower creations. I’m very picky about the materials I use myself and also recommend, using only the highest quality crepe paper gives the most realistic looking flowers.
I use and teach a variety of different techniques to make the flowers, some petals are hand coloured to get the perfect shade using inks, pastels and markers. They are then cut, glued, fringed, twisted, shaped and moulded, each petal and leaf individually, to create the bloom.
Each flower is intentionally made slightly different to the next so that they are more representative of nature, no flower is perfect, as in life.
4. What reactions do you get from your clients? Do they love your products?
Most people that watch my YouTube tutorials can’t believe they’ve managed to make a beautiful flower from crepe paper on their first attempt! (I have lots of begginer tutorials to try, that are quick and easy to follow.)
And most people that receieve one of my finished flowers, or one made by my students, can’t believe that they’re made from paper and not real!
5. What are the advantages of Ta Muchly Paper Blooms?
The main advantage is that my flowers don’t die! If you’ve earned yourself a reputation for being a plant killer, then these are definitely for you!
I always finish my paper flowers with a UV coating which helps to protect them from fading and moisture damage. As long as the flowers are displayed out of direct sunlight, they should last for years without any maintenance, making them a great alternative to fresh flowers.
Another benefit to paper flowers is that you can easily create them in any color combination that you’d like, even if it doesn’t exist in nature. So if you have your heart set on black roses, or silver peonies, you can make them from crepe paper instead!
I like to encourage my students to give the paper flowers they’ve made as gifts too, as receiving a handmade product that theyve taken time and care to create is so much more special than something mass produced.
