HASH(0xa0da796c) out of 5 stars Just right for vacation Oct. 1 2009
By T. Flynn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I usually take along crafts when I go on vacation. This year I wanted to pack lightly and I took only this book and a pair of scissors. The designs were easy to master and look even better made from reused paper such as menus or shopping bags. When I returned home I had plenty of interesting and unique stencils to use in my crafting.

HASH(0xa0bea54c) out of 5 stars fun and easy to make stencils for adults and kids Nov. 27 2011
By liberal sprinkles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I had a lot of fun with this book, which got me reaching for paper and a pair of scissors immediately so I could start cutting. Included are designs for 28 stencils inspired by author Kanako Yaguchi's travels in Japan, China, Thailand, France, Portugal and the United States. For instance, there are patterns inspired by lotus petals in Thailand, buildings in New York and church crosses in France. It's an interesting form of travel journal of sorts, with the author describing travel experiences through stencils.

The paper stencils are created pretty easily by simply folding paper squares or rectangles into fourths or eights, then cutting as indicated in the tutorials. The instructions are straightforward and most of the projects don't require too complicated manoeuvrings with the scissors. The stencils can be used for all kinds of crafts - making cards, mixed-media art, wall decorations etc. The book gives some ideas: home decor projects like a tea mat, flower vase cover, book cover, photo frame and a lamp stand.

I think the book is great for both adults and kids. It gives you ideas for things you can cut from paper, and may even inspire you to create your own stencil designs influenced by things you see in your daily life or your travels.

HASH(0xa11bdda4) out of 5 stars The art of decorative paper stencils. By kanako yaguchi May 18 2011
By Margo Thomsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a teacher, I love this book. At first,the kids were a little confused, because this is out of the box! A few minutes later, they were just having so much fun . It is great for math, reading, cutting and THINKING! This is the end of the year in Ga and the kids can not wait to do this activity on the last day of school. They wanted to look at the book and kept saying " I can do that". Then they made their own designs! This lesson went on for hours. This book is worth it's weight in gold! I am ordering the second book. BUT, before you get this book, have a ream of paper ready!

Its just fun looking at the book! Great directions and pictures, and how to apply it to decorating various objects. Cannot believe its that easy to do. Makes you rethink all of the beautiful papers you come across that would make flakes/flowers/etc.

I've already done a few & they're wonderful.Just disappointed better instructions weren't there for the more detailed ones shown on the pages. Maybe book 2 has them.
