From richly textured handmade paper to elegant pop-ups, Paper in Three Dimensions brings paper crafting to new levels. Author Diane Maurer-Mathison, a Watson-Guptill favorite, uses the 3-D concept as a springboard to creativity, so her readers can do the same. The hottest paper-crafting topics are all here, including origami, pop-ups, paper sculpture, cast and handmade papers, dimensional sculpture, and boxes and baskets, each presented with fresh projects. Lavishly illustrated step-by-step directions make it simple to create an origami bowl with origami lilies; a greeting card in the shape of the Eiffel Tower; and a pop-up sculpture garden, complete with trees, gated walls, and flowers. Unusual and sophisticated, Paper in Three Dimensions is sure to delight paper crafters from the ground up, up, up!
