Ultimate Papercraft Bible: A Complete Reference with Step-by-step Techniques
Collins & Brown, 2012 - Crafts & Hobbies - 304 pages
The latest volume in Collins & Brown’s bestselling Ultimate series reveals all the techniques you need to begin make beautiful projects in paper.
First, the chapter on tools, materials and basic techniques will help you decide what equipment you will need to get started, although for many of the techniques in the book, not much more is needed than paper, scissors and glue.
Once you've got the basics covered, you will be amazed at the variety of paper techniques there are to explore. Various paper treatments are covered in Colouring, Decorating and Texturing. Learn how to make beautiful cards for family and friends in the Cardmaking chapter, and add a special personal touch to gifts by making your own Envelopes, Giftwrap and Gift Boxes. The Scrapbooking chapter is packed full of ideas on ways to preserve memories of trips and events. Decorative techniques can be found in the Papercutting and Origami chapters, and there is a final chapter on Other Papercrafts which includes techniques such as papier maché, decoupage, quilling and advice on the best ways to make your own paper.
