Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Los Angeles-based artist Bondoc (Letters of Intent) developed her approach to paper cutting as a way to work with paper without the chemicals and fuss of printmaking. Using stencils, craft knives, and simple adhesives, she creates paper art featuring cutouts and colorful layers. This guide walks would-be paper crafters through the various steps of creating a variety of projects, including place cards, ornaments, and stationery items. The designs require precise, controlled work, but the results are often striking—and they bear a strong resemblance to Bondoc's first love, printmaking. VERDICT Paper crafters, including scrapbookers, will find ideas and inspiration from Bondoc's artwork.
