Papercraft Projects with One Piece of Paper
Witches on broomsticks, curly-tailed mice, wide-eyed owls, sharp-beaked woodpeckers, squiggly caterpillars! See these and dozens of other creatures come to life simply by folding, cutting, and curling a single sheet of paper. Even very young hands can fashion a variety of whimsical wonders with the help of this easy-to-read and amply illustrated guidebook. No special artistic skills or materials are needed.
Ideal for classroom or hobby room use, Michael Grater's entertaining book shows how to construct a myriad of shapes ? each one hidden in a piece of paper and just waiting to be lifted out. Clear step-by-step instructions and 92 vivid illustrations allow paper engineers of all ages to create such fanciful figures as a shark, frog, tortoise, seahorse, crocodile,˙lizard, rabbit, and horse, as well as a lavish fireworks display, and a portrait gallery of delightful faces.
Here's an unusual and inexpensive learning tool that parents and teachers can use˙to develop a child's sense of color and pattern and to encourage creativity and imagination.
