Techniques and Template Sets for Papercrafting Projects by Nan Banato
Focus is on a popular, while also classic aesthetic—the silhouette. From portraits to folk art, everyone appreciates the strong lines and bold contrast of this powerful form and papercutting.
After giving readers the basic know-how to cutting their own intricate shapes from paper, the author guides them step-by-step through over 20 projects that incorporate the silhouette designs. Papercut shapes are in themes such as sea life, small animals, botanical and classic figures and will be used in a variety of projects from tea-light lanterns, to gift boxes and cards, to party décor, wall art and so on. While instructions for cutting their own shapes by hand are covered, the reader will also be introduced to the option of using a die-cut machine.
