How to Make 100 Paper Flowers: Ideas and Instruction for Folding, Cutting, and Simple Sculptures by Maria Noble
How to Make 100 Paper Flowers: Ideas and Instruction for Folding, Cutting, and Simple Sculptures

Suze R, May 6, 2014

Very clear photos and text guide you well in learning this craft.I really liked that the book was broken up by materials and techniques.I originally bought it to learn the crepe paper technique for making realistic flowers, of which there are many examples provided.THere are also techniques using other materials like paper napkins and scrapbook paper.The color photos are beautiful and there is always a clear photo of the finished product.
It gives you many ideas for weddings,the home and any celebration you might think of.
I like that there are several beautiful rose patterns,since Portland is the City of Roses.
If you pair this book with Paper to Petal,you will have a lifetime of ideas for making paper flowers.
I highly recommend this book for people with all levels of experience.

Paper to Petal: 75 Whimsical Paper Flowers to Craft by Hand

This is one of the best books I have found for all levels of experience for making paper flowers.These flowers are great for weddings,parties and any other celebration you might think of.The book has patterns,suggested types of materials and does not push certain brands,which I really like.It is a beautiful book and will give you hours of ideas and crafting pleasure.If you pair this with Maria Noble's book How To Make 100 Paper Flowers,you will be able to broaden your ideas even more.
I highly recommend this book if you have any interest at all in learning this craft.

The Aviator's Wife by Melanie Benjamin
The Aviator's Wife

I didn't know a lot about the Lindberg's story other than the kidnapping and Anne's book Gift From The Sea.I did not really have a lot to compare the story to so I have to say I enjoyed the book and found it very entertaining.I could glimpse some "nuggets" of reality,but honestly did not feel the book was trying to portray the real story.It did inspire me to find out more about the real details of their lives.I had not known that Anne was an aviator herself and quite a pioneering woman in many ways,albeit conflicted.I recommend reading this book,but leaving the true historical details behind until you finish it.

This book is gorgeous and you will want to keep it nearby for daily inspiration.I read about this book on the Attic 24 blog where I am constantly inspired also.If you love color and eclectic finds you will love this book.If you tend more to very modern sparse settings this might not be the book for you.
With spring garage sale season approaching this book will help you see your new finds with fresh eyes and open your eyes to ways of using very ordinary objects.Highly recommend this book.

Felties: How to Make 18 Cute and Fuzzy Friends by Nelly Pailloux
Felties: How to Make 18 Cute and Fuzzy Friends

This book is FUN! Some beyond cute projects to make gifts for your friends with excellent taste.Spend some cold dark winter nights with this book and some felt and you'll have it made.A note:some of the materials other than felt (i.e. certain buttons or beads) may be a hard find, so you may need to improvise.Don't worry about having the "exact" look as the book,just have fun.A good companion book for your friends on the darker side is Zombie Felties.
