I absolutely love this book. I began arranging flowers eight years ago in 2007 and I discovered this book @Macon and I was smitten. There is so much inspiration to be gleaned from these pages--and you can do it with or without a paper punch, though the latter makes it a lot easier. If you love crafting and exploring and expressing your creative self, this book is a great place to cultivate that inspiration within you. There's even a Garden of Inspiration with the ideas coming to life on boxes, as wreaths, on scrapbooks, wall mounts and cards. The possibilities are endless!

Intricate work, but well worth it when you see the results. Amazing what you can do with some scrap paper and a little imagination (and great instructions!)
