Playing with Paper

Paper has a versatility that rivals any other medium. It can be torn into pieces or burned with a match, yet it also has the presence and integrity out of which decorative objects, fashion, and even architecture can be created.

In Playing with Paper, well-known paper maker and artist Helen Hiebert presents a delightful and exciting collection of paper crafting techniques — from model making, paper cutting, and pop-up construction to book arts, quilling, origami, folding, and pleating. Projects include window stars, shadow ornaments, a pop-up castle, a ring, a piece of cake, a piano hinge photo album, a folding screen, a table runner, an inflatable ball, books and book covers, party lights, a nightlight cover, a Sode kit, an expanding file folder, and more. There are even a few projects that involve flying paper!

Playing with Paper also includes a gallery of inspirational work from leading paper artists that expands on the ideas explored in the book. Helen Hiebert's book is subtitled, "Illuminating, Engineering, and Reimagining Paper Art."
