Dear Summer Diary,
The girls & I were lucky enough to receive the latest Klutz book entitled "Fabulous Flowers" for review on our blog!
We definitely liked that the book came with all but a few simple supplies that we already had around the house. (Scissors, nail clippers & a jar were all we needed!) Here is a sneak peek of two pages inside the book...
The book shows you how to make 8 different styles of flowers, & once you learn a few simple techniques, you can put your own spin on the flowers & mix-n-match how you wish! The book contains 26 pages of over 200 punch out pieces!
My 8 year old decided to make the larkspur. All the flower petals, parts & pieces are INSIDE the book & they're easy to punch out & put together! We loved the way the instructions tell us how to make them in easy step-by-step instructions.
My 6 year old had trouble paying attention & following along with me. We both decided to make zinnias. At one point I looked over at her & saw this... (Thus the ever important 8+ book age recommendation!)
I think these flowers would look adorable attached to gifts & birthday packages, glued to clips for your hair, attached to a pin as a brooch, or strung up as a garland!
I am a fan of Klutz books & this one delivers for sure!! I even found a link in the back for a free mail order copy of The Klutz Catalog: klutz.com/catalog And, as usual, if you run out of supplies in your Klutz books, you can get more by visiting their website.

We'd like to share our summer fun with you & give 2 books away to 2 lucky blog fans!! Just leave a comment on this post & we'll choose 2 names this Friday afternoon, June 10th.
