I own a library of books on paper and paper crafting and this is up there with the best of them. Inspirational and something a little different from the norm. Well worth the money!

A fabulous range of crafts with differing skill levels. Old books can be recycled to make all kinds of things from cards to paper bowls. There is a section for children. An ideal craft resource for those working in schools, libraries or community groups that reuses old books that are too worn out to pass on. Also ideal for GCSE and A level art project ideas.

This book has many attractive ideas and good illustrations that guide you along with the instructions. It is also positively a promotion of using 'used' and recycled materials - but what it does assume is a high level of dexterity particularly in cutting out very fine and intricate patterns with a scalpel to gain a high level of finesse in the final product. It is not really for the beginner in terms of craft making experience. Many of the projects require a lot of patience, a list of materials and time as they are quite intricate. The book is inspiring and a good source of ideas though but could gain from rating each project on level of intricacy. I also personally felt that the tools & materials page should be at the front not at the back of the book. It is a lovely gift book as it is so attractively bound and produced.

I love this book. There are so many good ideas with so much to do, that it is hard to decide what to do first!
The projects range from paper cutting for relative beginners to more involved skills such as the clay and quilled paper dolls ( i have already brought some clay to make a doll! ) The templates are really good and easy to follow.The materials need not be expensive either as tatty old books can often be picked up for a few pence at jumble sales etc , i have also used old magazines for paper cut outs.
I would say this book is a must for all crafters.

I own a lot of books on paper craft and this book looked interesting. As I said the book is ok but I wouldn't say it was outstanding. Some of the project are interesting but many others you could probably find on Pininterest for free. As I collect books on paper craft I'll keep it but if I could go back I wouldn't buy it again.
