Have you ever wished you could afford to fill your home with flowers all year around? Now you can. Papercraft expert Denise Brown has designed 35 exquisite projects using techniques such as simple origami, layered découpage, papier maché, and quilling. The papers she uses range from everyday giftwrap, colorful pages torn from glossy magazines, paper napkins, and tissue paper to handmade paper, parchment paper, and crinkly crepe paper. You can display the flowers in vases, create bouquets and posies to give as gifts, use them to decorate gift boxes and greetings cards, or create wall hangings and window displays. There are delicate sprays of springtime catkins and oversized pompom flowers, cheerful daisies sitting in a field of paper grass, a wreath made from ferns and leaves, and spectacular water lilies created from tracing paper colored with chalk. Whether your taste is for garden favorites, such as daffodils and sweet peas, wild flowers, such as poppies and thistles,or classic beauties, such as lilies and roses, here you will find the perfect project.
