Descripción del producto
Paper cutting seems to be all the rage with many books sprouting up on this subject. This has a quality feel with a beautiful cover, one of my favourite designs from this book. It is well designed with simple projects that anyone can make. It starts with simple folds, progresses to accordion folds - single, double and quadruple. It then demonstrates layered folds - double, triple and quadruple. My main criticism is that the images for the folds are small and I don't find them that easy to use. In the second part of the book you will find contemporary projects such as cards, collage or book covers to make with the skills you have learned in part one. There are 14 good projects. In part three, the books takes inspiration from six designers with some exciting projects for those who have mastered the paper cutting skills. Finally there is a how to make the projects section in black and white, which I found too small - you might need a magnifying glass. All in all I liked it despite its foibles and it will trigger off lots of ideas of your own. --yarnsandfabrics/crafts, October, 2012

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.
On the positive side the illustrations and instructions are clear. I would recommend this book for a primary school library or for a crafty child aged under 10.
Unlike other crafts that take a lot of time, paper cutting is quick and fun and results are fairly immediate. Anyway, I feel very artsy and crafty and I am proud of my creations. Beautiful book with great directions. Highly recommend!
