If you love paper you will love this book!!!! Here is my review of the paper back edition

Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Paper-Fold-Exquisite-Folding-Projects/dp/071532585X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1226072228&sr=8-1

As the title suggests this book shows you many projects created using assorted paper folding techniques.  There is an introduction to the various types of paper available and the tools you will need for the projects shown in the book.

The book takes you through three projects in each of the following paper crafts;

Teabag folding

Tato-ori

Iris Folding

Origami

Tissue Folding

Modular Folding

I bought this book on impulse after a quick flick through it. I almost put it back as Iris folding just isn’t my thing, I don’t have the patience for it. Having had some time with it, I am now so glad I decided to buy this book. It is a very inspiring book, once you have created some of the projects you are bound to come up with new ways of using the folds to create all kinds of gifts and embellishments.

As well as the projects there is an excellent reference section at the back with details of suppliers around the world, of paper societies and also templates for some of the projects in the book.

This would make an excellent gift for anyone who loves paper. It is an excellent introduction the the various paper crafts mentioned above with enough information to encourage and inspire without overwhelming the reader. The projects are shown step by step with plenty of photos and drawings to enable everyone to get started really easily. I definitely recommend this book to everyone interested in trying new techniques with paper crafts.

Best wishes and thank for reading
