Pretty Paper Flowers

December 5, 2014
  Today I’d like to tell you about a beautiful book that will help you fill your home with stunning flowers even during the coldest season. All you need is some paper, scissors, glue, wire and a bit of patience.
   The author of the book – Denise Brown, who has admitted that she’s “no gardener”, offers 35 projects to choose from. All of her flowers come to life and sometimes it’s really hard to believe that they are made of paper!
   Denise says she loves flowers, but isn’t trying “to replicate them”, yet she has noticed every single detail: shape of a petal, colour variations or general structure. The scale might be not always right and there’s quite a lot of space left for artistic license, but you will always be able to tell what flower you are looking at.
  In this book you will find easy to follow step-by-step illustrations, beautiful photographs of the end result, heaps of templates and probably even inspiration to come up with your own designs – once you have tried making some of the not so complicated blooms, you’ll be able to imagine how to construct something more impressive.
    Just think of all the pretty displays you can create for various seasonal holidays, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other important moments in your life!
   Such flowers can be give as gifts, used to decorate your interiors or even be turned into greeting cards. The possibilities are endles.
   If you like crafts I encourage you to create affordable blooms and decorate your home all year round.

    Cool, a new book title to look for. 🙂 I always love reading about the techniques artists use to make something. Thank you for sharing.

      It’s a really nice book and I would like to make carnations, peonies and loads of other flowers, yet I’m worried they wouldn’t look as good… I chose the easiest project and made some white pompoms for Christmas today 🙂 K. xxx
