Paper + Craft
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a book review, so I thought I’d show you a book I bought a few months ago when T.J. and I were in New York. I’d looked at purchasing this book online before but wasn’t totally sure if I’d like it or not, so I never bought it. That is until I was able to flip through it in person at the NYC Urban Outfitters – and then I knew instantly I had to have it.
Paper Craft includes the instructions to make 25 charming gifts, accents and accessories all from paper. The book was created by Minhee and Truman Cho, who are the cofounders of the upscale stationary and paper goods company PAPER + CUP.
One of my favorite projects is the animal drink tags. Who likes losing their drink or picking up the wrong drink at a party? No one! And that’s where these darling (and functional) drink tags come into play.
One of my other favorite projects in Paper + Craft is the tissue paper stars and moon project. They show it to you in a nursery setting, but it’d be perfect for any bedroom or themed party!
The projects and crafts supplied in the book are quite diverse. You could take a lot of elements from the book and apply them to all future paper crafts. It’s great!
