This set is fantastic! The book includes instructions on how to make the following types of cards: 2 types of flowers, square, origami, purse, caterpillar, and pop-up (and a few others). It also shows you how to make a small box with lid and 2 types of envelopes. Included in the kit are plastic templates for all of the cards and envelopes (9 or so). Then there are templates for several flowers and a wrap-around bow. Not to mention the measuring guide (8 x 12 inches), the scorer and folding tool in one, and the 12 pieces of 8 1/2 x 12 cardstock and 10 pieces of paper. The card ideas alone are wonderful (easy and pretty), but the templates put this set over the top. The only improvement I can suggest is that the plastic is really flexible. I wouldn't have minded paying a little more for slightly sturdier plastic, since I plan on using the templates a lot!
