Announcing the biggest, best, most innovative book ever on paper craft. Even better, this is not about how to use costly, artsy paper, but how to turn stuff around the house—magazines and shopping bags, candy wrappers and paint sample cards, wrapping paper, old maps, and paper towel tubes—into stunning jewelry, gifts, home decor, party favors, and much more.

Chances are you’ve seen the author’s cutting-edge work in the windows of Anthropologie, where she is the chain’s merchandising manager. An inveterate crafter who creates projects and styles photo shoots for magazines like Parents and Vogue Knitting, Kayte Terry takes the most versatile of materials and the most basic of crafts (remember snipping valentines out of construction paper?), and creates something completely trans- formative. Turn a sheaf of any white or graph paper into an amazing Scrap Happy Globe Lantern for the dining room. Fashion colored tissue paper into Songbird Votives, leftover raffle tickets into a Prizewinning Bowl, that out-dated pile of holiday catalogs into a picture frame. There’s a necklace made of playing cards, a gum wrapper bracelet, and barrettes made by quilling—a paper technique that goes back to the Renaissance. Every project is photographed in full color, and includes step-by-step illustrations and instructions. Truly a book that shows how to think outside the (cardboard) box.

Baker & Taylor
Presents a collection of projects that can be crafted from commonly available paper materials, including gum wrappers, junk mail, paper bags, magazines, and wrapping paper.

I'm with nerowolfgal on this one; there's nothing remarkable about this book. If you can use Pinterest, you can find more interesting paper crafts than are in this book. And it's just as well that you do that anyway, since all the templates in this book have to be downloaded on the website anyway. I don't really recommend this book at all, unless you're a total beginner to paper crafts.

when I saw the cover I was very interested but a lot of the crafts inside were made of ugly newspaper which kind of ruined the look. I guess the point of the book is to reuse paper you already have at home.

The title says "exceptional" projects but inside is the same old paper beads, decoupaged bracelets, and bowls. Nothing new, nothing beyond grade one school projects.
