MEDIA REVIEWS
"Tiffanie Turner's creations are exquisite. Her D.I.Y. instructions for handmade marigolds, roses, dianthus and daffodils are meticulous."

--New York Times

"Under the mantra 'You must make what you see, not what you think you see, ' this book guides artisans to astonishing results."
--Publishers Weekly

"The first time I saw Tiffanie Turner's work, I was speechless. In her skilled hands, crepe paper, wire, and glue became tiny (and sometimes wonderfully larger-than-life) works of floral art, beautiful enough to anchor the grandest of dining tables. While Tiffanie's flowers hang in museums and galleries, her book makes this intriguing art form accessible to even the most novice of crafters. I can't wait to dive into this beautifully photographed book and its rich collection of inspiring projects."
--GRACE BONNEY, founder of Design*Sponge and author of In the Company of Women

"Tiffanie and I were introduced decades ago at the San Francisco Flower Market, when I was a floral designer and she was an artist buying blooms to paint. Flowers are still her muse, but now she's immortalizing them in a different medium. In an age when everything is fast paced and fleeting, it's invaluable to create and share lasting beauty--and that's exactly what Tiffanie does in this book."
--KATE BERRY, style director of Domino magazine

"This is a true labor of love from a truly passionate artist. Not only is Tiffanie's attention to detail awe-inspiring, but so is her generosity of information! This gorgeous book is basically like getting the key to a treasure box filled with years of Tiffanie's self-taught knowledge, brilliant tips and tricks, and, of course, more paper flowers than you can even begin to imagine."
--DANIELLE KRYSA, founder of The Jealous Curator and author of Your Inner Critic Is a Big Jerk

"The first time I saw Tiffanie Turner's breathtaking creations I did a double take. 'Paper? Impossible!' And yet sure enough, they are. And as such, they are utterly spectacular. The Fine Art of Paper Flowers is an in-depth instructional book for us mortals--super detailed with everything you need to know to try your hand at paper flower creation."
--ARIELLA CHEZAR, author of The Flower Workshop

"Tiffanie Turner's thoughtful approach to creating stunning, botanically accurate
flowers is both inspiring and encouraging, opening our eyes to new ideas to
create something of our own. From 'very easy' to 'not very hard, ' her unique
techniques take away the fear, making us want to pick up some crepe paper and
make some flowers for our next party!"
--JAN HALVARSON and EARL EINARSON, founders of Poppytalk.com
