"There is no doubt that this is the best manual on paper folding designs available today." -- Display World This comprehensive and superbly illustrated guidebook offers complete instructions for making an almost limitless variety of imaginative and beautiful paper objects -- masks, hats, baskets, greeting cards, party decorations, costumes, trees, Christmas decorations, stars, birds, giftwrap, even mobile sculptures. Art educator Pauline Johnson provides step-by-step instructions and expert advice on every technique involved: cutting, curling, bending, folding, scoring, fastening, and more. Over 470 photographs and 560 diagrams and illustrations accompany the easy-to-follow directions. Best of all, no complicated equipment is needed. Paper, a pair of scissors, an X-ACTO knife, staples, and adhesives are the only tools and supplies required to begin making paper magic! "By far the most extensive and best treatment of the subject I have seen. A versatile and useful book which should appeal to art educators, classroom teachers, and ... to the youngsters themselves." -- Art Education "A most thorough, creative, and beautifully organized book, so complete that it could be the basis for many art and craft projects for all age groups." -- Recreation Magazine
