Presenting an illustration from Home Decorative Work (1891) as today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page.

“The art of making paper-flowers has become so popular that a few hints as to the best methods may be acceptable. One great feature which will recommend it to many ladies whose tastes outrun their purses, is that with a small outlay for materials, they can brighten and beautify their homes, by the exercise of a little ingenuity and patience. The tissue paper used can be obtained from any stationer. The domestic costs from two cents to six cents per sheet according to color. The French paper is from four cents to eight cents, but is worth all the difference, in the superiority of finish, and one sheet of a color goes a long way, if used with care and economy.”
