    Excellent class! It was easy to follow along and create the items exactly as demonstrated.

    I love Creative live. But this class did not teach me how to make quality products. In fact I feel that he had no idea what he was doing. I am a paper florist and was hoping to learn more. It was very boring and I couldn't finish the class. I'm sorry if I insulted anyone. It's just the way it effected me.

    This showed one very basic way how to make paper flowers. From the name of the classes, I expected to see more variety of designs and styles shown.
