Translated into English this guide showcases complete instructions for making 40 gorgeous flowers—roses, peonies, daises, pansies, and more— using heat tools and a range of stunning materials like silk, lace, velvet, and ribbon. Each flower is accompanied by stepby- step directions and full-color, close-up photographs, plus clear, illustrated diagrams and full-size flower templates. The beautiful photography also provides inspiration for how to use the blooms as corsages and brooches, embellishments for headbands, fascinators, and bracelets, or even to brighten up a room.

A comprehensive tools and techniques section introduces crafters to the specialized instruments and the trade secrets behind the starching process utilized to manipulate the fabric and to construct the flowers in the book. As the process is broken down into simple steps, even complete beginners will be able to follow, making this book perfect for new flower crafters or for more experienced ones looking to improve their techniques.
