Review:

Jul 05 This book comprises of projects and ideas taken from the Handmade Greetings Cards series and provides excellent value for money. Included are basic techniques and projects aplenty - from tea bag and iris folding, lace, peel-offs, embroidery, plus silk and glass painting. You'll also find expert advice on incorporating punches, metal, wire and polymer clay into your card designs. Take a look - you'll find it hard to find a technique that isn't covered! Papercraft Inspirations May 05 If you yearn to have a go at all these modern papercrafts but don't know where to start then you might find this book a godsend. This is surely just the thing for anybody who has stood in a craft shop and wondered what all those intriguing items were for - lots of helpful photographic stages, explanations of equipment needed and the nature of the beast in general and in particular. There are old favorites such as rubber stamping and embroidery, Dutch newcomers such as Lace, iris folding and teabag folding and less obvious methods like polymer clay and metalwork. Each section is taken from Search Press' hugely popular Cardmaking series, and gives you the basics about the craft, tells you what you need and gives you usually two projects and a gallery. Useful for a complete beginner (and easy enough to follow) it is just as useful for people who have done a few of the methods and want to have a go at the others. Knowing what you need to obtain is a huge help, particularly in deciding whether a certain method is for you. This book is not a substitute for these other titles as it does not give each book in full, but at GBP12.99/$25.99 it certainly gives a taster for not all that much outlay. I wish it had been available when I took up papercrafts! A very user-friendly primer that has something to say to all most cardmakers as well as beginners. Myshelf.com Aug 05 Everything you've ever wanted to know about cardmaking - including low-downs on teabag- and iris-folding - is contained within the pages of this inspirational, definitive book.

Here, nine craft designers show you 12 different crafting techniques that can be used to create beautiful and diverse cards. Methods include iris folding, silk painting, stamping, polymer clay embellishments and lace...The layout is clear and colourful - a real winner! Practical crafts Iss 10, Sep 05 The expert Search Press team is at it again...whether you want to fold, stamp, embroider, punch, paint or emboss, or use peel-offs, metal & wire or clay - it's all here...Whether you want to look up a specific technique or just dip into the pages when you're stuck for ideas, this comprehensive publication is certain to add to your crafting knowledge and ability. From beginner to advanced crafter, this has to be the one to own. SIMPLY CARDS & PAPERCRAFT
