Folded Book Art - Book Giveaway

Congratulations to Janine.rudnick and @kartegraphik!

I have a feeling this brand new book is one many of you will enjoy hearing about because 'folded book' is the most frequently searched term here at All Things Paper! Craft author and designer Clare Youngs created 35 how-to projects, all made from discarded books, that look fun and easy enough to complete in an evening for her latest title Folded Book Art.

Folded Book Art - Folded Bird Project

Actually, many more ideas than folding are included...there's a bit of simple paper rolling as shown via the heart-shaped cover art. You'll also learn to create dimensional scenarios, as well as turn book pages into cards, birds and a lampshade. Each project is explained step-by-step.

Folded Book Art - Win a copy now through April 1, 2017

This shaggy, fringed paper dog is one of my favorites. So cute!

And these paper cut ferns and 3D mushrooms are lovely, as is the book's photography

Folded Book Art - Mushrooms & Ferns Project

More paper rolling, but a different variety... a mermaid frolics in clever curved page waves.

Folded Book Art - Little Mermaid Project

And now the giveaway! Two US or UK commenters will each receive a copy of Folded Book Art from the publisher, CICO Books.
