Paper to Petal Book Preview + Weekly Wrap Up

Today I’m spending some time in Ohio for a family wedding, so I’ve got flowers on my mind. As much as I love fresh flowers (there’s really no beating them), I’ve grown to love paper flowers as an alternative that’s longer lasting, more environmentally friendly and has the potential to be just as beautiful. Proving that point are the design experts behind the new book, Paper to Petal, Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell. Sharing their time-tested techniques for 75 different party decorations, bouquets, centerpieces and individual blooms, Rebecca and Patrick are breaking down the art of paper flower making in a way that makes it accessible for even the newest crafter. Their book doesn’t come out until August 27th, but you can pre-order your copy right here. It’s going to be stunning (and the foreward is by Martha Stewart herself) and is definitely worth picking up. Congrats to Rebecca and Patrick and thanks so much to them for sharing their brand new book trailer with us! xo, grace

Below is a summary of this week’s highlights:

LOVE this beautiful book. Going to get one for me and one or two as gifts. How beautiful. By the way, do you know who sings the song under the video, “Paper Flowers”? It sounds like one of those great folk rock songs from the mid sixties by the We 5.

The song is “Paper Flowers” by Dave Waite and Marianne Segal
