Ariel is our head editor, main author, and team leader, as well as primary financial backer. My part is to provide some of the rewards, help advertise the project, and of course to contribute some of my knowledge to the book. We have 8 other contributing authors, so we have a wide array of expertise to share in our book! Please read on to hear about the project.

Updated: The link! "kck.st/1P5sqlu All donations will help us publish! Thank you. :heart: We're looking for a lot of varied support, not for huge donations-- so please share the word, we're happy for even a $1 support! :D we want to get the word around~!!!

Our book includes tutorials from the following artists (thumbnails below), and we're making a variety of designs for you. Some are traditional, and others are to help you make your own original flowers. We have a  lot planned for this, and are hoping to make the print-release come true!

From flower kanzashi bobby-pins (hair grips), postcards, a musical CD, and the possibility of suggesting a tutorial to be added to the book!
