Look Good on Paper

The paper's intriciate printed pattern paper brings and its rippling floral shape bring a joyful pop of color to your look. It is finished with multiple layers of a protective coating, to help maintain its shape and to protect against the elements. Handmade in Florida.

Julie Dye

Julie Dye is passionate about working with paper and creating unique, one of a kind products. It all started when Julie was a student of photography at the Ringling College of Art and Design. It was at this time that she enrolled in her first bookbinding class. She immediately fell in love with the old age practice of binding books by hand and discovered great pleasure in the process of working with her hands. Over the next ten years she continued to explore the possibilities of working with such a delicate and irreversible medium. She has since gone on to create a line of handmade jewelry, accessories, home décor, and gift items crafted from beautiful Japanese papers

Cassie, UncommonGoods

It's hard to believe at first glance that these pretty petals are actually made of paper. Do you love these hair pins by origami artist Julie Dye?

Susan
Vote: Thumbs down!

Really wonder if the paper would hold up in really humid days and how fragil they would be.

Kristin
Vote: Thumbs down!

Very pretty, but your core audience would be children/teens and I doubt even coated paper would stand up to the abuse they would heap on these.

Christina
Vote: Thumbs up!

Not sure how well they would hold up, but they are very pretty.

Cute idea and made in Florida! Not so cute after it rains....and we get some torrential downpours here

Rain? Humidity. Hair spray? Don't think these would hold up for more than 1 wearing, if that.

While I don't think these would be great for hair (for all the reasons mentioned) I think they would be awesome on a package instead of a bow. ;-)
