Product description

Paper - both affordable and universally available - is possibly the most versatile material in the crafter's kit box. In this new book in the Simple Makes series, Christine Leech demonstrates 30 original and creative ideas for lovely things to make from paper. Some of the projects are simply drawn and cut, such as the glistening, rippling fish mobile, whilst others are constructed and glued, for example a cute yet practical stationery birdhouse that holds paperclips inside and has post-it note tiles on its roof. A few slightly more advanced projects involve special techniques, such as the beginner's bookbinding method used to create the hand-bound Japanese-style notebooks, but everything is easily achievable by following the clear, step-by-step instructions and guides.

Author information

Christine Leech has been an avid crafter since childhood, sewing menageries of felt animals, wardrobes of dolls' dresses and always refusing to buy a greetings card when a handmade one could be sent instead. She now has over 15 years' experience designing and art directing a host of women's magazines, most recently working as creative director of the acclaimed Marie Claire Runway. She divides her time between this and blogging about all things craft at Christine co-created the bestselling books Everything Alice: The Wonderland Book of Makes and Everything Oz: The Wizard Book of Makes and Bakes, which introduced a truly groundbreaking approach to craft.
