I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of the amazing new book Paper to Petal by Rebecca Thuss and Patrick Farrell – and I’m just going to be straight with y’all: It is completely impossible for me not to love this book. First, I’ve been in awe of Rebecca’s talent since I picked up my first issue of Martha Stewart Weddings back in college. Rebecca’s work was a huge influence on my own wedding five years ago, and in fact her styling work was the subject of one of my early posts on Oh So Beautiful Paper! Second, this book combines my two favorite things – paper and flowers – in more than 250 pages of truly stunning inspiration. What could be better?? I may have hugged my copy of Paper to Petal upon arrival.
Paper to Petal features an inspirational gallery of 75 paper flower ideas – including wreaths, décor, and centerpieces – followed by a resource section with a list of recommended materials and styling tips, along with thorough step-by-step instructions for all projects with accompanying templates. My favorite project? A beautiful mobile that I can’t wait to make for Sophie’s nursery.
