Dellys Presnell, a Cuban American crafter, inventor, graduate of Mercy College, and devoted mother of two sons, has completed her new book "Perennials from My Garden": an ingenious and splendid how-to manual for creating various crepe paper flowers.
Dellys writes, "I have also made it user-friendly, with easy-to-follow steps. I hope you will pass it on to others, especially younger generations, like daughters or granddaughters, who, like myself, did learn this craft while I was very young, and in the future, they might like to accomplish something big and rewarding with it. Besides, this book is not only a hobby for one's own personal enjoyment, but also it has commercial appeal for those crafters who wish to make use of my labor and turn it into a lucrative business. If you wish to start a business in your hometown, here you have all the stencils and steps necessary to accomplish it.
"By the way, with respect to some of my own narratives regarding where the flowers originally came from and the like, I remember how this one teacher who so patiently taught me and others this art form handed down to us a simple piece of paper typed with very short instructions.
"Page after page, the sole description of each specimen of flowers began with something like this: 'This flower is named so and so…below, copy and draw out the stencils…then using such and such crepe paper color, create them…period.' In other words, no history or description followed to describe any of the flowers. I believed at the time it would have made it much more interesting if it were included. However, what I lacked in prose, I made up for with an incredible artistic ability and talent!
"Therefore, in contrast and consideration of what was done in the past, I have tried to make the job depicted here as attractive and interesting as possible for you. I am describing each flower, and I am trying to give information of where originally each flower came from and who brought it to America."
