Congratulations to the winners - Michelle Brigham, Yvonne Li, and SNJ!
It has always been my intention with this blog to share distinctive things made of paper, and the projects in the book follow that premise. All are brand new and were created by artisans whose names you might recognize, as each has been featured here in the past. In fact, that's how the idea came about... I had the thought to bring together designers who could show just how capable and surprising simple paper can be, by making items that anyone would be proud to display in their home, wear as a fashion accessory, or give as a special gift.
The images shown here are just a small sampling of what you'll find inside.

And so it began... many months, emails, and mouse clicks later, the result is a collection that is not only attractive, but useful too. It was very important to all of us that the projects hold up to their intended purposes, all while looking stylish indeed.

One of my favorites parts of the book is that you get to know the makers... each tells why they work with paper and how they came to create their particular project. You'll also find step-by-step instructions and photographs, tips, templates, diagrams, and supply sources... everything needed to successfully recreate each design. A few of the projects are quite simple, while others will appeal to adventurous crafters who are interested in learning new skills.
