While visiting a friend in San Francisco, I recently noticed a particularly lovely book on her coffee table: The Fine Art of Paper Flowers: A Guide to Making Beautiful and Lifelike Botanicals, by Bay Area botanical artist Tiffanie Turner. Leafing through the pages, I was absolutely enchanted by the stunning paper flowers, almost too lifelike to be believed.
Vividly captured with photographs by Aya Brackett, more than thirty of Turner’s floral masterpieces are featured, with detailed, step-by-step instructions, as well as templates to make each bud, leaf, and petal. From English roses to giant dahlias, the projects include not only the flowers, but also tips for fashioning bouquets, garlands, and even headdresses. Personally, I can’t wait to get started.
