DIY Paper Flowers

by Tiffanie Turner | $17.00

The Fine Art of Paper Flowers by Tiffanie Turner. Artist Tiffanie Turner is one of our favorite paper flower creators. For years, she has produced awe-inspiring blooms. Meticulous in their construction—and some twice as large as her head—it only makes sense that she’d write the preeminent book on fine art flowers. The publication features gorgeous photography, her secrets for creating lifelike florals, and templates you can use, too.

Her step-by-step instructions allow even beginners to successfully complete her projects. With 30 flowers to make, this is one book to treasure and to refer for a long time. In addition to the tutorials, it’s also a great resource of where to find supplies and timeless techniques.
