Paper Blooms: 25 Extraordinary Flowers to Make for Weddings, Celebrations & Moreby Jeffery Rudell
Synopses & Reviews
Since 1967, crafters have entrusted their most treasured creations to Mod Podge--the number one, all-in-one glue, sealer, and finish product that's water-based for easy cleanup and totally non-toxic. The popularity of Mod Podge continues to grow, as does its product lineup that now includes Glitter, Outdoor, Dimensional Magic, and Glow-in-the-Dark formulas. Mod Podge Rocks features over 35 simple, inexpensive decoupage projects that showcase the versatility of this celebrated product. Contemporary, fun, and welcoming--just like author Amy Anderson's popular Mod Podge Rocks website-the book includes everything from home accessories and holiday decor to wearables and jewelry. Joining Amy herself as guest project designers are some of the hottest names in crafting, such as Cathie Filian and Candie Cooper. A basic section outlines the simple techniques, and each project features beauty shots, easy-to-follow instructions, and how-to photos.
"The thought of paper flowers may conjure images of previous times when young women made them from sheets in the teacher's facial tissues box. Rudell, whose work has been featured at Tiffany's and the New York Botanical Garden, as well as in Elle Decor, Brides, and Good Housekeeping, has assembled a garden's worth of blooms made of tissue, rice paper, vellum, and handmade paper. The tools (multi-blade scissors, needle-nose pliers, wire cutters, and glue guns, pens, and tubes) are described in depth before each suggested project, ranging from simple to complex. Color photos of the multiple steps in each project guide the way down the garden path to mums, marigolds, and poinsettias. This is a realistic and aesthetically pleasing guide for groups attempting marriage dÃ©cor en masse or for the individual attempting posy place cards for 10 or a special 3-D birthday greeting to drop in a friend's mail slot. Helpful templates included. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
