The Paper Year: A Planner, Calendar, and How-To Craft Book

From paper artist Helen Hiebert, here's a giveaway/gift idea for those on your holiday list (yourself included :)) who would enjoy making a very cool paper craft project each month. The Paper Year is not only a how-to book, but also a calendar and planner... a crafting trifecta!

In Helen's own words: The Paper Year is a creative project planner featuring 12 paper projects + an optional custom paper pack with everything you need to create the projects. This makes a great gift, and you'll receive discounts on multiples. Who wouldn't like a fun gift?

Learn to make clever paper lanterns, handmade paper, and special cards using origami, pop-up construction, paper weaving, and more. Along with easy-to-follow instructions and photos, there is a list of materials and tools needed to complete each project (the majority of which you already have on hand), plus templates and a monthly planner page where you can jot down notes and paste paper samples.

The twelve new projects include seven Helen-originals and five by guest artists, and are small and doable. Each one takes about a half hour to complete. You'll find an online resource list of the required supplies and downloadable templates to print onto your papers, in addition to the pre-printed templates that are included with the actual book.

To make it especially easy to get started crafting right away, the Deluxe Package (contents shown above) offers a copy of The Paper Year and a collection of specialty papers that Helen has gathered from around the world, along with items you might not have, like a battery-operated tea light for the paper lanterns.

If you would like to see the projects up close and personal along with tips and chuckles, have a look at Elissa Campbell's Instagram feed, as she recently documented the making of each one.
