Papercrafts have as strong and loyal a following as ever, and with Home, Paper, Scissors, paper devotees can now create a beautiful collection of projects to accent their homes and to give as gifts.
They’re quick and simple to create—most take just an hour or two to make and involve only simple cutting, folding, and gluing. Yet the outcomes are stunning. Drawing inspiration from the natural world, Zapata incorporates earthy colors and sleek, organic style into projects that will have people asking, "Is that really made from paper?"
Divided into sections on decorating, entertaining, and gifting, the book features pieces ranging from lamps to bowls to keepsake boxes and journals. For anyone who’s striving to live a greener life, most of the more than 30 projects can be made from recycled materials such as brown bags, manila folders, magazines, and even junk mail.
Pick your paper, grab a pair of scissors, and get started folding your way toward a one-of-a-kind home accessory or handmade gift!
