There are clear instructions on the different ways of folding paper, cutting and all you need to do to make the various patterns is to trace or copy them from the book. This book will get you started easily. All you need are scissors of craft knife and paper. It’s a great Christmas present for craft loving people and a great resource for self made paper Christmas decoration. A clever part of the book shows you how to use candy wrappers and shopping bags for free paper and inspiration. It gives you a good launching point for experimentation, as well as many different projects to do as-is.
