Overview

Cherry blossoms, forsythia, marigolds, and petunias: Who would have imagined you could recreate such gorgeous blooms with just paper and craft punches? You can—and this accessible new craft will appeal to anyone with a creative bent. Using her own original, unique techniques, Susan Tierney Cockburn offers 40 beloved flowers to make for decorating gifts and home décor. She teaches the simple basics, including paper manipulation, gluing, and coloring, and presents her flowers as colorfully as they’re found in nature. From A (Amaryllis) to Z (Zinnia), there’s a bountiful bouquet of blooms to choose from! Photographs document every step, and a visual template of the punches accompanies each flower. A dozen sample projects range from picture frames to wreaths.

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.
