*Starred Review* What could be easier than paper and glue? But Rudell proves that beauty in fashioning “fake” flowers takes time and patience. His latest book hands us the how-to’s for creating 25 fanciful blooms for any occasion. Be aware that many resemble Mother Nature in shape and size only; the rest are truly up to individual creativity (plus the array of paper stock that’s readily available). Therefore, “English Roses” are composed of patterned pink and red papers, while his white flower is 100 percent fantasy, not rooted in any global garden. Rudell takes pity on the fumble-fingered and craft novice. Every pattern features elegant, step-by-step captioned color photographs; a list of specific tools and materials; occasional tips; and, of course, the glorious finished product. Designs are deliberately presented by level of (unmarked) difficulty, from the ranunculus to the hearty sunflower. Maintaining a garden was never so easy. --Barbara Jacobs
