Format: Paperback
Once I brought this book home, I immediately started folding and cutting various pieces of paper and had a blast. I have many other bookbinding books, but this one brings a sense of joy and whimsy not found in the others. This is a useful book for kids and book artists alike!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By lar_student on December 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
I stumbled across this book and thoroughly enjoyed following along with the instructions in this book. The easy to follow instructions helped me to transform a regular sheet of paper into something truly magical. It was a delight to read through and then to make my own creations. The author encourages experimentation and exploration of the paper throughout the entire process.Of course, some parts were frustrating to make simply because I was unaccustomed to these designs. But that's to be expected, especially when trying to learn completely new things.

For those bored or for those who are serious about finding new ideas for greeting cards or personal projects, this book is highly recommended!

You can't go wrong with Esther Smith and Purgatory Pie Press. My kids and I have spent hours pouring over her projects, and then hours more creating our own.
