Format: Paperback
Although visually pleasing with lots of nice photos Paper + Craft: 25 Charming Gifts, Accents, and Accessories to Make From Paper, this book is very disappointing. None of the projects are new or original and some are downright silly. Do I really need know how to make a moustache on a stick? In some cases, instructions are overly detailed. As well, the illustrations accompanying the instructions are far too small.

Most disappointing is that you must go to the Chronicle web site to find and print out the project templates. What a lot of bother that it is.

Good Projects, Great Inspiration Oct. 14 2010
By K. Kasabian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This stylish, modern how-to book is an important addition to my expanding craft book library. Most of the paper projects are simple to make and quite beautiful, but the most exciting aspect of the 25 projects is that they are a catalyst for one's own imagination. There are so many papers available today that any given project will likely never yield the same results twice.

Each project contains a finished photo of the project, line art illustrations of the steps involved and some suggestions for adding creative details. The illustrations are fairly functional but far too small (small text and pictures are a common gripe I have with Chronicle Books titles in general). The accompanying written directions are simple and straightforward.

Some of the projects included in this book are: paper flag banners, giant paper flowers, pinwheels, wrapped candle holders, book covers, mustache drink toppers (very cute), paper silhouette portraits and a bird mobile. Some projects include templates that are available through the Chronicle Books website, so you'll need a printer. If you're an active crafter, you will probably have most of the supplies on hand already.

All in all, a great book for those who value having and giving things homemade. Recommended.

good, but ...... Jan. 31 2011
By Process - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Bought the book due to the great graphics and ideas, however you must go on the web site to get the patterns. When I get a book I want the patterns in the book or a dvd included for the price and for convenience.

Not what I expected Feb. 22 2011
By Azul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I know that with the large information available at the internet is getting difficult to find a book with really original ideas but base on reviews and the pre-view of the inside the book that is exactly what I was expecting. I thought this book could provide with some out-of the box ideas for paper crafts and it didn't. Despite the fact that most of the projects are available on-line, they don't have the wow factor I was looking for, the ideas are very simple and if you are really paper crafty probably you came up with the same ideas by yourself. Oh and the best part the templates are not included the instructions are like: use a template for a flower and then do this, seriously? why the templates are not included you even have to look for them, I know is not difficult to find them but at least I would expected that the templates were included.

Uninspiring June 25 2011
By ShannyJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hate leaving a bad review but as a avid crafter, I was excited to find a new book about paper crafting. While there is beauty in simplicity, these projects were beyond simple and I didn't feel like there was anything new. The cover looks very inviting but I wouldn't judge this book by it's cover.

Nice but not my thing Aug. 1 2013
By cbarnes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great pictures and clear instructions, a beautiful book really, but there aren't any projects that I actually want to do. Party decorations, that sort of thing. Nothing exciting for me but that's just personal taste. The quality itself is high.
