Sometimes you see something and think well isn’t that just nifty? That was my reaction after seeing these paper vases by Octaevo. The vases start off as a seemingly flat pieces of paper but once pushed in at the edges you end up with some very stylish 3D objects. The vases are made from a special waterproof paper but you’ll still need to place some sort of vessel inside to hold your flowers. So they’re more like a quirky disguise for your old jars and cans that double as vases. As someone who often uses random vessels to store freshly cut flowers, I’m all for these paper vases. The upcoming Craftsman Collection is a series of four paper vases featuring die-cut shapes and gentle curves. A range of small paper vases will also function as greeting cards, complete with envelopes and gold embellished notecards. You can take a peek at the current Mediterranean-inspired paper vases up on the Octaevo website with the new collections available from October 2016.
