Cherry blossoms, forsythia, marigolds and petunias: Who would have imagined you could recreate such gorgeous blooms with just paper and craft punches? You can - and this accessible new craft will appeal to anyone with a creative bent. Using her own original, unique techniques, Susan Tierney Cockburn offers 40 beloved flowers to make for decorating gifts and home decor. She teaches the simple basics, including paper manipulation, glueing and colouring and presents her flowers as colourfully as theyre found in nature. From A (Amaryllis) to Z (Zinnia), theres a bountiful bouquet of blooms to choose from! Photographs document every step and a visual template of the punches accompanies each flower. A dozen sample projects range from picture frames to wreaths.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING BOOK 30 July 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a most amazing book. The beautiful flowers can be made easily and the instructions are clear with detailed pictures to help you. The only problem I found is that most of the punches used are by an American Compnay called Punch Bunch and are not supplied by any company in the U.K. You can however find alternatives to most of the punches from Woodware, Leone Em, Carl etc. but there are some flowers I have not been able to make because I cannot find the necessary punches in the U.K. However this is still a brilliant and inspiring book and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I have just found an English company selling the Punch Bunch punches - at last. They are called The Craftz Boutique and have a web site. They are going to stock all the punches to make the flowers in this book.

Joanna Sheen has just started stocking the punches for this book. Type her name on a search engine and you will get to her web site.

4.0 out of 5 stars good book 21 Mar 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book, but once I received it, I was at first happy with it, very good quality, clear instructions both written and pictorial, however, I know it is for punches but did not realize how many punches you needed to make a flower, upon looking into the prices off the punches fully I soon realized that it is going to get expensive, so just a precaution that yes you will need lots off punches to use the book to the full advantage, but other then that it is an excellent book if you are into making your own flowers/flower arrangements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Papercraft Flowers 21 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback
This is a simply beautiful book. It shows you how to make your own papercraft dimensional flower embellishments using paper punches. How you use them is up to you, whether it's cardmaking, scrapbooking or home decor projects - the possibilities are endless. Whatever you decide the results cannot fail to wow your friends and family.

With beautiful photographs and clear instructions (including pictures of punches used for each project) the book takes you on a breathtaking tour of popular floral blooms. Those included are:

Amaryllis, Anemone, Aster, Azalea, Bachelor's Button, Begonia, Camellia, Carnation, Cherry Blossom, Chrysanthemum, Clematis, Coreopsis, Cosmos, Daffodil, Dogwood, Echinacea, Forsythia, Gardenia, Gerber Daisy, Holly & Berries, Impatiens, Iris, Japanese Anemone, Marigold, Ornamental Kale, Pansy, Peony, Periwinkle, Petunia, Pinecone, Poinsetta, Primrose, Queen Anne's Lace, Rhododendron, Rose, Sweet Pea, Tulip, Verbena, Violet and Zinnia.

If you haven't the patience (or dexterity) for using paper punches then this book isn't for you.

However, if you love papercrafting and flowers you will adore this book. I would happily have paid £15-£20 for this. So provides excellent value for money too. I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars paper bouquet 22 Feb 2011
By josie
Format:Paperback
The book is very instructive and very compelling. I couldn't put it down. the only problem is obtaining the punches
required to complete these projects. I read an earlier review about the craftz boutique being the only UK supplier so i went there but a lot of the punches were sold out. Hopefully these punches will become more widely available in the uk soon as it would be a shame not to be able to duplicate some of the projects. Overall I would recommend this book and is very good value.
P.S I have just received e-mail from craftz boutique to inform me that two of the punches have arrived so i am off there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Flower Cards 10 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was recommended to me as part of a course I attended. The hardest part was getting all the items needed. I have most of the recommended punches and am looking forward to starting on my cards. The instructions seem relatively easy to follow, so watch this space.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, very informative. 6 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book, there's quite a bit of ready but the pictures are great. The man problem is that you will need to buy the punches or similar to achieve the desired results. However I feel if you're inventive you could use this book purely for reference and adapt other punched shapes or dies to get a similar flowers look.
