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 décor 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.)
