Book Description

Be inspired to create gorgeous handmade papercradts for the festive season. The simple idea of a snowflake has been harnessed to create 15 original designs that incorporate the myriad patterns of the snowflakes hexagonal structure.

Starting with single snowflakes to create cutouts and embellishments for cards, tags and giftwrap, the projects build in difficulty to more delicate and complex artworks and sculptures. Each project has easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and line illustrations to guide you together with inspirational photography of the finished projects. All the templates that you will need are grouped together at the back of the book, including extra template directory with additional patterns for you to mix and match into your designs.

Decorate your home for Christmas and more with this cut out and create book of snowflake inspired projects. Simply cut out and follow the instructions to make fifteen beautiful items.

One look at the lovely snowflakes and angels on the cover and I was sold I particularly love books that you can make up! Dont forget to make copies, though, before you start snipping, as there are so many lovely patterns in here that more projects suggest themselves as you leaf through. You dont need much to make anything in here and there is just one page of simple basics before the creating starts.

As most of the book is for cutting up, all the project instructions are at the front, and all have staged photographs with captions. As well as the usual card, tags and pictures, there is a table runner, gift box, mobile, 3D Christmas tree, bow, angel and others. Many can be made up in white if desired, but each piece is double sided so there is choice of colour. For example the tree is green one side and red the other.

All lines are black and fairly fine, visible on white or pale colours but a bit hard to see on some of the darker ones. Work in a good light would be my advice, and this book wont arrive bent if sent through the mail as it has a hard card back. A lovely and well produced book that is a lot of fun to make up.
