Then, you’ll use these elemental shapes to build the 15 bright, abundant arrangements, including bold wreaths, bountiful bouquets, fantastical gilded wall art, and blooming garlands. Introducing new, neverbefore-seen techniques for dyeing paper and creating moldable leaves and petals, this gorgeous guide is perfect for crafters of all skill levels interested in making realistic and unique home decor, gifts, accessories, and entertaining essentials.

Cetti, a floral stylist based in N.Y.C., highlights the hidden elements that make paper flowers and various arrangements of them a surprisingly realistic art form. All of the 25 creations included in the book celebrate the geometry of nature: Once you start to think of flowers as basic shapes, the author explains, one part becomes a block upon which the next part is built until the final creation ultimately comes together in a unified whole. In her arrangements, larger flowers provide the foundational element while the “holes” are filled in with medium-sized and smaller flowers (such as hellebores and coneflowers) for medium-size filler and poppies for the smaller spaces. This easily navigable book equips crafters with the skills for creating individual flowers and larger arrangements while providing a delightful overview on the basics of botany. Color photos. (Apr.)
