Great Paper Crafts
Ideas, Tips, and Techniques

by Judy Ritchie and Jamie Kilmartin with Deborah Cannarella


  (see also: other kits on our Crafts page)

Paper crafting encompasses two of the biggest categories in the industry: rubber stamping and scrapbooking. Rubber stamping has evolved beyond the stamp-color-layer process; stampers are experimenting with origami, paper quilting, and various three-dimensional looks. Scrapbooking is no longer a simple cut and paste operation; emphasis has shifted to scrapbooks that reflect a family's personality instead of just photos placed in albums.

Great Paper Crafts: Ideas, Tips & Techniques brings you the best projects, from simple to complex — gathered from paper craft artists and suppliers around the country, From sticker art, punch art, pierced paper, paper weaving, to tea bag folding, origami, iris folding, quilling, collage, and altered books, here are fresh ideas for handmade greeting cards, gift wrap, bags, and tags, party invitations, decorations, and favors — boxes, frames, and ornaments. Instructions on how to make the projects are included along with generously sized full color images of each project. At least one project in each chapter has illustrated step-by-step instructions to help you recreate it.

Nothing lets family and friends know they are cared for more than a personal, handmade card or package. With stickers and papers from Mrs. Grossman's Paper Company; and quilling projects from Lake City Craft; pierced paper projects from American Traditional Crafts; paper folding projects from Hanko Design and Yasumoto; paper weaving and bargello projects from Magenta Rubber Stamps; punched projects from Punch Bunch; and torn paper, embossing, and punched projects from Petite Motifs Great Paper Crafts: Ideas, Tips & Techniques offers the inspiration and the information you need to create your own unique handmade paper crafts.
