Amanda Baudanza


Hi All! I’m Amanda Baudanza—and I am AJBees. I design and handcraft everything you see on these pages (minus the vases).

I specialize in creating one-of-a-kind paper flower arrangements. Perfect for gifts, events, home decor or just because. Each flower is crafted entirely by hand. There are no set patterns or templates I follow, thus making each arrangement truly one-of-a-kind.

Every arrangement is finished off with a single bumblebee. A simple reminder that we are often capable of the very things that people tell us are impossible….

Traditional wisdom says the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly; its body is too big and its wings too small for it to develop the lift required for flight. Aerodynamically speaking, it’s just not possible for it to fly.

But the bumble bee doesn’t know this, so it just goes ahead and flies anyway.

The bee is a symbol of the idea that anything is possible. Where there’s a will, there is always a way. Just Bee-lieve
