With Valentine’s Day taking top billing this week, many of us have been searching for the just right card or gift; some of us have even tried to make something by hand.


Fortunately, there are creative individuals who have collected their ideas on making gifts out of paper, card stock and a few other items in a wonderful book entitled :

Paper Artist: Creations Kids Can Fold, Tear, Wear, or Share.

This user-friendly book by Gail D. Green, Kara L. Laughlin, Jennifer Phillips 

is full of colourful photos of finished projects that invite

readers of all ages to give them a try.

Instructions are listed in a clear format and are easy to follow.

Projects range from earrings and necklaces to a time capsule and flowers. So many choices!

This is an ideal book to keep on the shelf for those times when you want to make an individualized gift for someone or to upcycle some items into a special ornament or object for yourself. It is a resource with many ideas for greening your gifts!

This book is a great winter read. I recommend this one for anyone from the tween ages upwards. Enjoy!
