Not as good, but still inspiring,

This review is from: Cut Up This Book!: Special Occasions (Flexibound)
Emily Hogarth's follow up concentrates on special occasions and there are certainly some lovely ideas. Indeed, the pages showing several designs together decorating a room are my favourites, showing how versatile a craft papercutting can be. There are of course some beautiful designs and variations, but I just feel I will end up making few of them. Paper hairbands anyone? The cards and window decorations are beautiful, and she provides a useful if small seasonal motive library, but some designs feel try-hard: how long will moustaches on sticks be in, and others seem unnecessary such as food flags. Still a beautiful book and some designs I will soon use, but it's better to inspire your own creations than as a book to copy all of hers.
