Paper to Petal: 75 Whimsical Paper Flower Ideas to Craft by Hand by Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell

Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell are a wife and husband team who have created an awe inspiring collection of do-it-yourself paper flowers in Paper to Petal.

From scrap paper to coffee filters, roses to posies, there is practically no stone unturned in this collection of crafts. Ideas are organized by color and occasion, so whether you are decorating for a child's birthday party or creating wedding invitations, look no further.

For those such as myself who may question your ability to craft, have no fear! The back of the book contains patterns for all the petals, leaves, and accouterments in addition to step-by-step, easy to read instructions. Plus, as an added bonus, some of the flowers even include coffee mug ring stains as artful coloration - even the clumsiest of crafters (that would be me!) can't make a mistake.
