Honeycomb Paper Decorations - Not Just for Kids!

Preston Davis paper daisy photo booth.
Before I started working at Luna Bazaar, I  hadn't seen a paper daisy since grade school. (I'm not going to say how long ago that was.) Now I seem to be seeing them everywhere. Before I say any more, let me explain paper daisies and honeycomb decorations!
Paper daisies are the decorations you see in the picture above. They are one type of honeycomb decoration. You can see more of the honeycomb structure of the daisy when you open it up.

The Sunburst is another example of a honeycomb decoration that opens like a fan.

Sunburst decorations make a bolder statement, and are more attention-getting than paper daisies. The intricate pattern is created by strategically placed cuts in the tissue paper. In white, the sunburst looks very much like a snowflake. This type of decoration is very effective in the holiday setting below.

Another member that belongs in the snowflake family is the Pizelle paper lantern. These decorations have a honeycomb structure, but they are constructed of much sturdier paper than the tissue paper honeycombs. Some of our designs can be lit from within with a light bulb.

When you purchase one of our honeycomb decorations, this is how they look:

Here is the Honeycomb Globe as it is being opened up.

These decorations are shipped with white paper clips for holding the edges together. Choose 3 places along the cardboard edges to place the paper clips as seen below.

Time to feel like a kid again! Happy decorating.
