Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The thought of paper flowers may conjure images of previous times when young women made them from sheets in the teacher's facial tissues box. Rudell, whose work has been featured at Tiffany's and the New York Botanical Garden, as well as in Elle Decor, Brides, and Good Housekeeping, has assembled a garden's worth of blooms made of tissue, rice paper, vellum, and handmade paper. The tools (multi-blade scissors, needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, and glue guns, pens, and tubes) are described in depth before each suggested project, ranging from simple to complex. Color photos of the multiple steps in each project guide the way down the garden path to mums, marigolds, and poinsettias. This is a realistic and aesthetically pleasing guide for groups attempting marriage décor en masse or for the individual attempting posy place cards for 10 or a special 3-D birthday greeting to drop in a friend's mail slot. Helpful templates included. (Apr.)

Library Journal
Paper artist Rudell provides step-by-step directions for crafting realistic flowers out of paper and paper products. The combinations of colorful paper with commonplace materials such as corrugated cardboard or coffee filters may be surprising, but they're also effective. The coffee-filter carnations look more like a flower than a receptacle for coffee grounds, and corrugated cardboard is a solid stand-in for the center of a sunflower. Rudell's guidance is thoughtful and encouraging, and the projects, which incorporate a variety of techniques such as quilling, paper cutting, and simple wirework, are striking. VERDICT Wedding crafters and handmade-decor fans will find solid inspiration and excellent instruction in this collection.
