Origami Tulips for my Valentine

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, but the down side is they don't seem to last long enough for me!  So when I saw this video on ehow providing instructions for creating origami tulips, I just had to give it a try.

It was so easy!  After creating a few flowers I decided that I just had to create a Valentine arrangement.  So, I wrapped florist wire with strips of fabric and then inserted them into this beautiful black glass vase with some cut branches from the yard.  To add another dimension, I finished it off with a few pieces of white quilling paper.

If you've ever thought you might want to try your hand at origami - this flower is a very easy one to begin with!  If you decide to try, please share your pics!
