Transform old books and magazines into beautiful paper crafts, with over 50 inspiring projects.

Packed full of ideas for everything from stationery and homewares to paper animals and gifts for kids, Creative Book Art shows you how to make stunning projects that look impressive but are deceptively simple to make. Get cutting and gluing to make display scenes and decorations such as a fairy-tale castle, printed feathers, and hanging paper birds. There are also ideas for turning books into 3D works of art simply by folding the pages—you’ll learn how to make beautiful sculptural shapes including a heart, a star, and a cloud and raindrops. Clear step-by-step instructions guide you through a variety of techniques, such as origami, block-printing, and quilling, to make your paper creations. With just a few basic tools and some old books or magazines to get you started, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to repurpose pages into unique items to keep or gift.
