Scissors, Paper, Craft 30 Pretty Projects All Cut, Folded and Crafted from Paper


Paper - both affordable and universally available - is possibly the most versatile material in the crafter's kit box. In this new book in the Simple Makes series, Christine Leech demonstrates 30 original and creative ideas for lovely things to make from paper. Some of the projects are simply drawn and cut, such as the glistening, rippling fish mobile, whilst others are constructed and glued, for example a cute yet practical stationery birdhouse that holds paperclips inside and has post-it note tiles on its roof. A few slightly more advanced projects involve special techniques, such as the beginner's bookbinding method used to create the hand-bound Japanese-style notebooks, but everything is easily achievable by following the clear, step-by-step instructions and guides.
