A Question About Flowers

Yesterday a reader of the blog asked the following:

Hello again, I do not know who I'm writing to now, but I wanted to ask a question. Does anybody can recommend me a good "how to book" For making miniature flowers?
Because I see those wonderful flowers on all kids of blogs but how do I make them? Yesterday I made some cabbages and I am pleased about them. I am so addicted already.
Bye :)

If anyone has suggestions, please do leave a comment!

If you make flowers from polymer clay, having a pasta maker to roll it out thin and Kemper cutters or flower shaped paper punches (you have to dust the clay and cutter with corn starch) helps alot. I've used a round paper punch to make paper roses and glued them to wire cupping the circle and rolling the edges back slightly. Some flowers can be made with tissue paper. There is also a method using thin gold wire and fingernail polish. Some of the mini doll makers on the MSAT list use this to make flowers for hats and bouquets. Hope that helps some.
