Paper is a great material - it is readily available, inexpensive and very adaptable. It comes in hundreds of types, weights, colours and textures. Many of the projects in this book only need simple measuring and cutting skills. And if you make a mistake you can just scrunch it up and start again! The team behind Mollie Makes magazine have brought together all their favourite papercrafters in a range of impressive disciplines from papercutting to papier mache. They share their tips, stories and beautiful projects, inspiring us all to pick up an old book, a newspaper or a vintage map and get creative. Learn how to make stylish cards to impress friends and family, create unique folk-inspired papercut artworks, fold origami lily fairy lights, and decorate your home with an impressive handmade lampshade, a delicate paperbird and a mini party pinata. With simple projects requiring only the basic kit of paper, glue gun and craft knife, as well as more complicated ideas using decoupage, quilling, pop-ups and papier mache, there is plenty to keep you busy. In fact, you could say we've got papercraft all wrapped up!
