Decorative Paper Crafts

Vivien Frank.

By Vivien Frank

Marbled, stenciled, block-printed, folded-and-dyed: these simple techniques transform plain, white paper into stunning stationery, greeting cards, gift bags, and more. First, look at the artists' gallery to see a range of incredible, original paper items--even jewelry! Then hone your skills and create designs using all of the 6 basic decorating techniques. Sponge, comb, or draw a pattern with paste; cut simple blocks from potatoes, corks, and other household objects; make stencils and brush or spray paint them on; dye or laminate your sheet; and embellish with two methods of marbling. Eleven projects include notelets and a matching case, a box cover, a wastepaper container, lampshades, picture mounts and frames, a blotter and letter holder, and more. Bonus: instructions for cutting cards, scoring, box-making and other paper construction techniques! 96 pages (all in color), 7 1/2 x 10 1/2.
