By Angelika Wolk-Gerche; Translated by Anna Cardwell
Over one hundred things to make with paper, including stars, birds and animals, masks, windmills and bags.
Paper is a remarkably versatile, easy-to-use and easy-to-find material for use in arts and crafts. In this book, Angelika Wolk-Gerche presents detailed instructions for making hundreds of things out of paper: everything from cutting out paper stars, to folding birds and animals, making windmills, masks and folding and sticking gift-bags. You can even cut a hole in a sheet of writing paper that you can climb through!
The book also includes instructions for making papier mâché, hand-made paper and working with pulp.
Ideal for parents or teachers, the projects are most suitable for children aged 7 to 14 years old.
Softcover, 96 pages, with full colour illustrations. 229 x 210 mm.
