This book has everything you need to create beautiful paper flowers. The book has templates to not only copy what flowers in the book, but to go on an create other flowers The illustrations are beautifully laid out, instructions are clearly written aside the step by step pictures. Where to shop for supplies is and added bonus. Buy this book and have lots of fun, while you make an elegant bouquet.

Not a great variety of style; simply variations in colour. Well photographed, but not worth the money. Not for the experienced crafter and artisan. Good coffee table book.

Gorgeous flowers photographed beautifully. I'm so happy I purchased the hardcover rather than the Nook Book. It's worth it to see the full size pictures. I love the format (very much like a flower recipe). It leaves plenty of room for your own creativity. Inspiring!
