Paper Flower Art

he word paper comes from the Egyptian word “papyrus”.  It comes from an aquatic grassy works on the River Nile in Egypt.  It was believed that the Egyptians were the ones who contrived paper flowers and not the Chinese.  History says that way back 5,000 years ago, the Egyptians have been using papyrus for miscellaneous usage.
