Modern Paper Crafts

Modern Paper Crafts presents more than 20 projects that rely on classic paper craft techniques, but are suited to 21st-century style and aesthetics.The suite of contemporary projects ranges from gift wrap, holiday ornaments, and note cards to home decor items like a frames, boxes, bowls, silhouettes, wall art, mobiles, and even a folding screen. Projects are divided into five chapters: folding, cutting, scoring and sculpting, pleating, and recycling.

Each chapter begins with an overview and step-by-step photo tutorials of basic techniques, and each project includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations. A variety of papers are used for the projects, from standard cardstock and scrapbooking paper to art papers and recycled corrugated cardboard.

All of the projects are accessible to the novice paper crafter but will also appeal to the more advanced crafter. Each project is beautifully shot in a stylish home setting by LA based photographer, Jen Gotch.  Modern Paper Crafts introduces the contemporary DIY crafter to the thrill of creating with paper.
