Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Paper artist Cockburn (The Paper Garden: Summer Blooms) presents a guide to fabricating realistic-looking flowers using paper punches, cardstock, and glue. The end product can be used as embellishments for scrapbook pages or cards, in wreaths, or as framed or free-standing art. Detailed, step-by-step instructions are included, and each flower pattern begins with a clear listing of what supplies will be needed to replicate Cockburn's designs. A "Basics" section at the beginning of the book provides introductory information, but a familiarity with paper art and the use of punches is assumed. Scrapbookers and paper artists looking for attractive embellishment ideas will appreciate Cockburn's step-by-step approach. Recommended for paper arts collections.

    Great Book, but Lacking Something Important

    I love making flowers of all sorts, so I simply had to have this book. I love the variety and samples provided, and the author explains how to make each one pretty well. What I don't like is that there are not templates for the different petals. The author simply tells you that you need punches A, B, and C to make flower X. There is not even a list of suppliers of where to get such punches. I know now that McGill has a line of punches that would work for this, but it was pretty irksome to get this great book of flowers, yet not have any way to actually make them without searching for and purchasing a BUNCH of different punches, which is rather expensive. Templates should have been included!
