My Thoughts: I’m a paper crafter and love making my own homemade greeting cards, scrapbook pages, bookmarks, gift tags and all sorts of other paper crafts. However, I’ve never jumped into the paper collage art medium until now. Within 4 days of receiving this book I read it cover-to-cover and really learned a lot. Doing paper collage is NOT a hard thing at all, as I’ve learned by reading the book

The author does a really nice job of explaining how to do paper collage and tells you about the few tools that you’ll need and how to use them. If you’re looking to get into paper crafting, this is one crafting medium that is affordable to do and you don’t need a lot of space to house your supplies.

One of the things I love about this book is that they’ve included over 500 images in the book for you to cut out and replicate the author’s paper collage designs or use them to come up with your own unique designs. They’re really nice images (clearly printed) on high-quality paper. Not interested in paper collage? Feel free to cut out the images and use them to make greeting cards, gift tags, bookmarks, journal covers, in scrapbooks, etc.

    I have enjoyed making collages in the past. but I have not made one in many years. This looks like just the book to encourage me to start making them again,. I can see how it would be therapeutic.

  2. This looks like a beautiful book with so many lovely images and information. I have not done a collage since my younger days but it looks like it would be a creative and relaxing activity. It would be interesting to try one of the designs that she has created.

  3. I pinned and wishlisted this right away. I really go for the paper crafts. I have some cards and nice paper sacks I want to recycle with some prints but I’d like ideas on other projects too. Butterflies are my favorites and these are lovely. They’d be great for my plain notebook covers too (have tons of those) and these would really brighten them up.
