In a nutshell:
Short synopsis: Paper projects for children of all ages
Did I like it? Yes, it is inspirational and gives tons of ideas and instructions
For people who: like paper and crafting
The projects in this book cover a wide range of topics and levels of difficulty. Every (future) paper crafter can find something here that appeals to him/her. The book is divided into several chapters, from “Adorable Accessories” (definitely for girls), “Pretty Presents”, “Classy Keepsakes” to “Dazzling Decorations”.
Some of the projects are intricate and fragile; as the mother of two boys I would predict that they won’t stay intact for very long, but maybe girls are a bit more careful with paper art. If you are a beginner or you have clumsy and impatient kids, you should start with some of the easier, more sturdy items, but as you get more experienced you can try your skills with more advanced projects. And there is plenty to choose from. Tubular frames, quilled name plates, cards, photo cubes, book ends, owls, boxes, ornaments, time capsules, you name it. The techniques vary, from scrapbooking to quilling, to weaving to mosaic. Some of them easy, some of them rather sophisticated and with a lot of supplies. The instructions are always clear and easy to follow.
If you are a paper crafter and would like to introduce your child to it, or if you want to explore paper crafting together with your child, this book is something you should definitely have a look out for.
