Written by paper artists Anna and Lene Schepper, creators of the blog PaperMatrix, The Art of Paper Weaving shows readers how to get started with paper, tools, and essential techniques, then presents a range of beautiful, colorful, and deceptively intricate two- and three- dimensional projects, from cones to stars to spheres, boxes, and beyond, in six gorgeous, inspiring themes: Love and Friendship, Celebrations, Magic Circus, Tivoli Gardens, Exotic Palace, Nature's Inspirations, and Advanced Designs. The book also includes full-size templates that can be easily photocopied. The Art of Paper Weaving gives you the techniques you need to master the craft, incredible projects to try, and the inspiration you need to create something truly unique.
