Making a Paper Mushroom with BellaPaperFlora 

The 2nd session of The Dark Moon Expo this time around will have TWO live demonstrations! 
Believe us when we say, Natasha is a genius! We walked past her stall and thought she was selling a real bat but it was made totally from paper. 
She will be going through all of the intricacies of insects and the details of imperfections that naturally grow with mushrooms. She will also be giving away the finished product to one lucky spectator as well. 

If you'd like to watch the Paper Mushroom live demonstration please be sure to purchase a ticket to the 2nd session.
