About This Class

In this class you will learn how to use upcycled books, along with other paper materials, to create beautiful unique floral displays. At the end of the class you will each have an opportunity to share your own arrangement by uploading it into the project gallery! This class is perfect for anyone who enjoys the look of these vintage inspired book page flowers! The course is well suited for beginners who are looking for a simple introduction into paper flower making.

You can learn more about me at my website www.lenaelise.com and you can see my original book page flower blog post at my blog, Tiny Painter: http://www.tinypainterblog.com/2014/04/book-page-paper-flowers.html

A nice easy class. I personally would have liked a template to use, for my first flower, like other classes I have taken on here. This would have given me the confidence, to attempt doing my own, after completing one I knew would work out.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this video... it helped a great deal in guiding me toward the finishing decorations of a luncheon for our church that I was working on. Many thanks!
