Description

Perfect for Paper Lovers: A Traditional Technique with a Modern Twist!

Originating in Germany and refined in nineteenth-century Denmark and Norway, the charming, time-honored craft of paper weaving has been transformed by virtuoso paper crafters Anna and Lene Schepper into a modern art form with an amazing array of creative possibilities.

In The Art of Paper Weaving, Anna and Lene, creators of the blog PaperMatrix.dk, show how to get started with essential tools and techniques, then present instructions for 46 beautiful, colorful two- and three-dimensional projects from cones to stars to spheres, boxes, and beyond, in six gorgeous, inspiring themes: Love and Friendship, Celebrations, Magic Circus, Tivoli Gardens, Exotic Palace, and Advanced Designs.

In addition to full-size templates for each project, which are also available for download online, you'll find practice paper to make a rocket ship!

The Art of Paper Weaving gives paper crafters of all skill levels the techniques they need to master the craft, incredible projects, and the inspiration they need to create something truly unique.
