Delicate pale yellow paper tulips

A lovely little bunch of pale yellow double tulips and dried Canary grasses in my great, great grandfather’s mustard pot! The pot is part of a cruet set he won for his prize vegetables back in the 1940s.

I used the bark from the Mahonia shrub in my garden to make a rich yellow dye. It only takes a second to turn the tissue paper a lovely pale yellow. I dipped the edges of the paper and left the the central strip white to get the two tone effect on the petals.
