Overview

Announcing the biggest, best, most innovative book ever on paper craft. Even better, this is not about how to use costly, artsy paper, but how to turn stuff around the house—magazines and shopping bags, candy wrappers and paint sample cards, wrapping paper, old maps, and paper towel tubes—into stunning jewelry, gifts, home décor, party favors, and much more.

Chances are you’ve seen the author’s cutting-edge work in the windows of Anthropologie, where she is the chain’s merchandising manager. An inveterate crafter who creates projects and styles photo shoots for magazines like Parents and Vogue Knitting, Kayte Terry takes the most versatile of materials and the most basic of crafts (remember snipping valentines out of construction paper?), and creates something completely trans- formative. Turn a sheaf of any white or graph paper into an amazing Scrap Happy Globe Lantern for the dining room. Fashion colored tissue paper into Songbird Votives, leftover raffle tickets into a Prizewinning Bowl, that out-dated pile of holiday catalogs into a picture frame. There’s a necklace made of playing cards, a gum wrapper bracelet, and barrettes made by quilling—a paper technique that goes back to the Renaissance. Every project is photographed in full color, and includes step-by-step illustrations and instructions. Truly a book that shows how to think outside the (cardboard) box.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Paper is inexpensive, abundantly available, and easy to repurpose, and thus an excellent craft supply. In this collection, crafter Terry presents 101 different projects using paper products, most of which require supplies that can easily be found around the house or at a craft store and no special skills other than the ability to cut out shapes and use a hot-glue gun. The projects are generally stylish, which is no surprise—Terry is a merchandiser for the fashion chain Anthropologie, known for their crafty-chic aesthetic—and since paper projects are almost endlessly customizable, they can be made to suit any taste. VERDICT Fans of eco-friendly crafts and creative repurposing will enjoy this collection of nicely designed, easy-to-make projects.

    Found this book at the library. After reading it, just had to have a copy of my own. I love papercrafting but until now have never been able to find a really good book on the subject. Great projects and inspiration for your own crafts. A great book just in time for my Christmas crafting.
