Creative Paper Cutting: Basic Techniques and Fresh Designs for Stencils, Mobiles, Cards, and More (Make Good: Crafts + Life) by Shufunotomo. Trumpeter (2010)

I love the crisp simplicity and the soft and quirky originality of these paper cutting projects. This latest book in the sought after Make Good: Crafts + Life series of Japanese books translated into English, is a welcome and fresh addition to the series. With traditional Japanese paper crafts inspiring us ever more to experiment with paper cutting and folding techniques, paper newbies and more experienced aficionados will fall in love with this book.

With very easy to follow instructions to make a variety of fun and interesting cut out designs, even primary school aged children will use and love this book. Together with the hand-drawn illustrations, clear how-to photos, templates and plenty of inspiring projects this book makes an excellent addition to our families growing papercraft book shelf.
