The flowers are fun, and whimsical / funky, and I have ideas I didn't have before, and ideas I hadn't seen on Pinterest. I have parts lists, and instructions, and suggestions for making variations on a theme. I got my money's worth from the book.
I don't see a problem with the patterns being printed on both sides of the page, by the way. I can't imagine why anyone would need to trace the patterns; if I use a pattern at all (not likely), I will look at the suggested shape and draw something freehand. It's not tool-and-die making.
The flowers are mostly created petal-by-petal. There is no speed-flowering here, except for a few frilly wraps.
Many of the flowers are variations on a theme, rather than 75 entirely different flowers. I wish there had been a few spiky flowers, like a glad or a bird-of-paradise, or maybe a bromeliad or three. Instead, there are lots of variations on daisies and poppies and peonies. No calla lily.
I am working on creating paper flowers for my wedding next summer, and am excited to include a number of flowers and ideas from this book. The images included are just gorgeous and the instructions are very detailed, even rated for difficulty so that users can know what to expect when starting a project. Honestly, the resources listing in the back of the book alone is invaluable for someone who has been trying to track down all the various online stores for different kinds of crepe paper, tissue, flower stamens, floral tape, decorative scissors, etc. I would highly recommend this book for anyone interested in crepe-paper flower making. Especially if used in conjunction with a book like "How to Make 100 Paper Flowers" by Maria Noble, you'll learn everything you need and never run out of ideas and projects!
with the most demystifying how to
kudos for making a more beautiful life diy
The first half of this book is full page colored photos of different flower arrangments. The next part is about supplies, then techniques, then all of the templates. I thought almost $20 was a lot but trust me, this is worth $30 or even more. The photos could be framed, they are shot so beautifully.
