Synopsis

Crafty Fun with Paper! 50 Fabulous Papercraft Projects to Make Yourself by Marion Elliot

This title features 50 fabulous papercraft projects to make yourself. You can create your own stationery, decorations, toys, games, masks, disguises and accessories. You can make a simple bookmark or fancy wrapped parcels, fashion a pair of funny monster feet or a cardboard crocodile, pretend to be a cowboy, produce your own jigsaw puzzle or play a magnetic fishing game. Easy techniques include paper folding, rolling, painting, printing, stamping, papier-mache, stencils, decoupage, and much more. It offers ideas for all children aged 7-12 to make themselves or with grown-up guidance. Clear instructions and step-by-step photographs throughout the book make each project straightforward to follow, with over 400 images in total. All you need is some paper or cardboard, a little bit of patience and your imagination! We use paper every single day. Newspapers tell us what is happening in the world, cardboard protects the things we buy, paper wraps our parcels and fills our books, and decorative wallpaper covers our homes. Paper is all around us, and life would be very difficult without it. But paper can be used in other ways too, and this book shows you how to create all kinds of fun objects to use for decoration or to give as gifts to your friends. Produce a decoupage picture frame or rubber-stamped stationery. Make papier-mache Christmas ornaments or your own playing cards for a lively game of snap. All the projects in the book use paper in its many forms, and each one shows you what materials to use and how it's done. Some of the projects can be made all by yourself, others may need an adult's help - but you're sure to want to try them all!
