Spotted via Mr. Kitly, a collection of Japanese washi-paper lantern style vases to cover a glass jar or cup holding cut flowers:

Above: Designed by Tokyo-based Rina Ono, the vases are available in a variety of sizes and shapes.

Above: At Mr. Kitly, the Nobitsutsu Paper Vase is available in two sizes, No. 2 and No. 4: each is $34 AU. Photograph via KiKi Japansk Design.

Above: Made of mulberry paper, the cover can be gently extended to cover a vase. Spray it with water to keep the paper taut. (N.B.: For more floral arrangement ideas, see 60 images of Flower Vases in our Gallery of rooms and spaces.)

Above: The Pappersvas 5 and Pappersvas 1 vases are also available from Kiki Japansk Design; 180 krona (approximately $27 US) apiece.
