Tell us about your business.

For Maria Noble, making flowers is a lifelong passion that began as a child watching her mother and aunt run a floral business. Using innovative methods, they made beautiful flowers from fabric, paper, and other materials for weddings and other special events. Maria started her own business ten years ago, incorporating her inherited skills and exploring ideas of her own to create new, distinctive flowers. The business has flourished, and now her exquisite flowers are sought out by consumers and businesses nationwide, including leading event planners in New York and LA. Her flowers have been featured in various magazines and on popular websites. Maria was tapped to write a new book "How To Make 100 Paper Flowers" by Creative Publishing.The book was released in June 2013 and is available on Amazon now. Maria sees herself contributing and creating new ideas in the field of paper crafting in the future.

What makes your business stand out?

Turning a handcrafted hobby into business was the first unique step.Having a handcrafted business and blog for over seven years transalated into the book where she shares her passion with other fellow crafters.
