Experimenting with corn husks

I posted this picture the other day on Instagram and hinted: it’s not made of paper, guess the material? Thinking that no one would guess. I was surprised to find that many people nailed it on the head. Corn husks! Am I just super out of the loop and never in a million years would I think to create something with corn husks? I’m guessing it was a thing back in the day or something. You got me.
ANYWAY, my intern Trisha Zemp, approached me about doing a project made of corn somehow and she suggested corn husks. Yumm, sure? I started experimenting with them and then thought, “Wait, is my life supposed to be dedicated to corn husks?” They’re dreamy. They hold a shape that paper cannot replicate, you can manipulate them to do anything, they’ve got a lovely grain. I worked until 3am creating petal after petal. Guys, it’s all about corn husks! 
I’ve done a few since them for this and that and I’ll show you a bit of what I’ve been doing here. I added some into a paper flower bouquet, second picture from the top, I was hired to create for someone retiring and created a corn husk hat for another shoot which I’ll show when it comes out.
And THEN, Trisha had the idea to create a little stop motion. You know, the genesis of the corn husk flower. It’s only natural. Isn’t it adorable?

More DIY corn husk projects on their way. I know you’re stoked.
