Review:

Dec 13 This book is a collaboration between two authors: Laurence Arnac has a background in graphic design, and Ho Huu An trained as an oceanographer - but has a love of papercraft. There is much to admire in this title - but I wouldn't recommend it for the papercutting novice. You have to be pretty handy with a craft knife to manage any of the beautiful projects. Having said that, each of the 40 papercraft projects is labelled both for cutting and folding difficulty. And there is a good tutorial section front-of-book which includes a diagram of practice cuts for learners. As you would expect, this is a template-based book. The projects are divided into Card Projects, Table Decorations, Special Occasions, and Christmas. There's pop-up card action aplenty, plus several boxes and ornaments. One of the cards, Celestial Sphere, is a beautiful star-topped slice form (slice forms are amazing interlocking 3-D constructions that fold flat to send). Cosmic! And I can't imagine anybody not being suitably impressed by the baby grand piano pop-up. There are several lovely Christmas decorations that you could send as gifts, such as the Snowflake Wall Hanging or the Reindeer Wall Hanging. This book is intended for hand-cutters, but if you have a digital papercutter, you could scan in the pattern and make them up (for personal use only, that goes without saying). To sum up: a pleasant collection of papercutting projects with year-round variety. * thepapercraftpost.blogspot.co.uk * Oct 13 The traditional art of Japanese paper cutting and folding is fully explained in this book. 40 projects have been included for you to hone your skills. You can make greetings cards, flowers, tea light holders, wall decor and more. The projects are graded as to difficulty so this book is suitable for anyone from beginner upwards. Gorgeous projects including pop ups. I really enjoyed this book. Includes templates, easy to follow instructions and great photography. * Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts * Aug 13 Kirigami is a Japanese paper cutting craft, accessible and easy to master for all levels of crafter. This new books contains a selection of 40 projects all accompanied by detailed and thorough instructions and diagrams which are easy to follow and master. Templates and photographic step-by-steps are also included. Follow the projects to encompass pop-up cards with a difference. * Making Cards * December 2015 The traditional art of paper cutting and folding explained here in simple terms. The book contains 40 delightful projects, by two papercraft designers, to help you hone your skills. The projects include pop-up greetings cards, Christmas decorations, flowers, tea-light holders, wall decor and much more. With great photography, easy-to-follow instructions and all the necessary templates, each project is graded as to cutting and folding difficulty, so this book is suitable for anyone from beginner upwards. * Love to Make *
