I Love this book!!! It ranges from simple to do flowers to hard ones. It's one of the first books i picked up when i started to learn how to do origami and i've gone back to it many times. Once you get use to the folds the flowers are beautiful and can be use for many center pieces and special events. Just imagine a dozen origami roses in a basket for mothers day or as the center piece for the tables at a wedding.

I understood and completed over half of the projects, but I was disappointed she used glue to assemble several of the finished flowers. Some of the starting bases with a pentagon caused issues, and I'm thinking my completed base was flawed and caused issues completing the project.
