About The Art of Papercraft

Paper artist and teacher Helen Hiebert compiles a one-of-kind collection of 40 unique projects, each using just one sheet of paper. Combining decorative paper techniques like marbling, stamping, and stenciling with dimensional techniques like origami, cutting, folding, quilling, stretching, weaving, and pop-ups, The Art of Papercraft offers a rich variety of projects that will delight crafters, artists, and designers alike, including paper votive lights, pop-up cards, folded paper gift boxes and envelopes, woven paper wall hangings, miniature one-sheet books, and much more.

Featured Review

“Every project is beautifully photographed and accompanied by step-by-step visual instructions. Guidance on selecting tools, materials, and paper selection; in-depth technique instructions; and profiles of contributing paper artists make this a rich and practical celebration of papercraft. Between the covers of this remarkably thorough book, you’ll find so much more than a host of clever, doable projects… each is composed of just one non-threatening sheet of paper, after all! I can almost guarantee you’ll want to sit down and start making right away. But it’s also an enjoyable tome for bedtime reading… Helen’s enthusiasm for paper, and all of the surprising things it is capable of, shines through in every aspect she shares from a career of paper making, creating, and teaching. Inspiration abounds, whether you are new to the world of paper or have worked – or simply played – with it for years.”
