Our customer reviews

This is quite a fun book although a bit repetitive and not many techniques are taught. Apart from instructions on techniques, there are also pages devoted to projects and paper cut ideas from different artists. Many of the designs are easy to execute, so the book can be used for crafting with children as well. There are some more difficult projects like landscapes and scenes with people figures. As with most Japanese craft books (this is a translation of a Japanese book), Creative Paper Cutting is very beautifully photographed and presented. There are clear instructions on the different ways of folding paper for cutting and all you need to do to make the various patterns is to trace or copy them from the book. Of the artists featured, I especially enjoyed the works of Keiko Tsuji. It's pretty amazing how she manages to cut (without patterns) in just the right places from scraps of printed paper and shopping bags to give her paper figures hair, socks, shoes and clothes without any additional drawing.show more

There are many little projects in this book and every one of it has simple steps to follow; like how to fold papers, what to draw on the paper to create certain effects etc. Worth buying and easy to learn !!show more
