Papercraft Christmas - Book Giveaway

Congratulations to Denise Beckand, giveaway winner!

For those of you with little ones at home or simply a love of mid-century folk art with its vibrant colors, Ellen Giggenbach's new book Papercraft Christmas from UK publisher Templar is sure to be appealing.

Papercraft Christmas by Ellen Giggenbach

Ellen, who was born in Bavaria and lives in New Zealand, creates her designs initially by hand cutting, then she assembles the graphic shapes and paints them with bright acrylics. You might recall a previous post about her paper home decor that included these Modern Geo Balls.

They are available via Etsy as an instant download; she also offers paper craft kits. Additional Christmas printables in the shop include these cute dimensional figures.

But let's get back to the book!

Within Papercraft Christmas's removable pages, you'll find tree ornaments, Santa and his reindeer-drawn sleigh, a snowman, tree, angels, plus more, to cut, fold, and assemble.

After all of the models have been made, let them be a springboard to making more with plain paper. Decorate with the included 200 adhesive-backed stickers.
