Flowers brighten our gardens and spirits, but throughout the centuries they also have been imbued with meanings and symbolism. This delightful ArtFolds Color Edition contains a fascinating guide to the meanings of many of our favorite blooms. Follow the simple folding instructions to create a colorful flower sculpture. An ArtFolds book is a hardcover book that is transformed into a unique paper sculpture merely by folding pages, based on our exclusive, patent-pending instructions. The process is fun and easy and takes surprisingly little time, making it as appropriate for children as it is for adults. Color Editions feature a lovely palette of shades that make a vibrant and eye-catching work of art. Each Color Edition includes some fun and compelling reading that matches its art theme. In ArtFolds: FLOWER, readers can enjoy The Meaning of Flowers--a special guide to the legendary and sometimes secret language of today's most popular flowers. From the symbolism of flowers in the Old Testament, through Shakespeare's poetry, and the "talking bouquets" of the Victorians that let lovers carry on clandestine romances, flowers have communicated volumes. Then fold the book into a beautiful flower paper sculpture that will remind you of springtime at its best, 365 days of the year. Level: Medium, 169 folding pages.
