Parents Day and Carnation Collages

Today is Parents’ Day in Korea. Typically children gift their parents carnations the actual flowers, but also representations of a carnation; I believe kids in school make crepe paper or paper carnations on parents’ day. Before I started, in my head I didn’t know how I would express the frilly and layered bits of the carnation, but they came together and I’m especially pleased at how the pink one turned out.

Card to say “I love you” in Korean

Wherever you are, whatever day you’re reading this, how about taking a moment to tell your parents (or children or family or someone special) how thankful you are for them. I know I love my parents, and the older I get, the more I appreciate them.

Brought to you by bits of hoarded scraps!

I love using scraps. I feel justified in having hoarded them.


  1. I like the idea of parents’ day rather than specific mother’s and father’s day’s. So many families aren’t of the old nuclear variety.

    And I’m totally with you on the joy of using scraps — I need frequent justification for my stash (as I move things from room to room trying to create officer out chaos).
