Book Review: Paper + Craft

Based in New York, day to day Minhee and Truman Cho are owners of an upmarket stationary and paper company, Paper + Cup  and this chic book is obviously an extension of their passion. The book has 25 design projects with step by step tutorials, easy for all to do from the novice to the more experienced crafter. If you’ve never thought about paper crafts, think again, all you need to get started are paper, scissors and glue.
Paper +Craft is a credit to the crafting world, this book is an excellent example of being able to bring vintage inspired crafts into the twenty first century.
Memorable Nuggets  - We Loved the animal drink tags, the picture is really exciting, this project can be used for kids parties and adult drinks.

This book has thought of everything, from the materials you’ll need, to a resource page of where you can buy what, the ‘Additional Ideal’ section at the end of each project, ensures the project don’t get boring, with different examples of how to experiment with the materials and finally this is my favourite part of the book, a link taking you to the website to download the templates for each of the projects.

Here’s one we made earlier.

Marks out of 5
We highly recommend this book as a gift or just as a treat to yourself. The charming projects can be easily achieved with the minimal fuss and you’ll look like a crafting god or goddess when you show your friends. 

We give this book a 4.5/ 5
