The Artful Ribbon: Beauties in BloomUser Review - Book Verdict
In years past, ladies' bonnets and other accessories were adorned with delicate flowers made from silk ribbon. With the decline in popularity of fancy trimmings, the art of making these flowers was almost lost. However, here is everything the ribbon-flower crafter needs to know about using modern materials in an old-fashioned way. Full-color photographs and diagrams describe materials, techniques, and finished products. Many products of collector's items from the 1920s as well as modern examples are included.

The pictures are beautiful, but directions are not detailed or super-well drawn.
