In Modern Paper Crafts, well known origami guru Margaret Van Sicklen blows the dust off of traditional origami and paper crafting, presenting more than 20 projects that rely on classic paper craft techniques, but are suited to 21st-century style and aesthetics. The suite of contemporary projects in Modern Paper Crafts ranges from gift wrap, holiday ornaments, and notecards to frames, boxes, bowls, silhouettes, wall art, mobiles and even a folding screen. Projects are divided into 5 chapters: folding, cutting, scoring and sculpting, pleating and recycling. Each chapter begins with an overview and step-by-step photo tuturials of basic techniques. Each project includes step-by-step instructions and illustrations. A variety of papers are used for the projects, from standard cardstock and scrapbooking paper to art papers and recycled corrugated cardboard. All of the projects are accessible to the novice paper crafter but will also appeal to the more advanced crafter.
