The art of decorating items with rolled-up strips of coloured paper goes back to the 15th century, and it has been around ever since. Colourful, easy to learn and versatile, this craft offers many possibilities. This guide helps readers to learn to make greetings cards, Christmas decorations, bridal accessories, decorative items for the home, three-dimensional objects, even a little pink pig. Gold- or silver-edged paper can be used for special effects. Other objects to be made include fringed flowers, folded roses, pinched leaves and rolled flowerpots. Paper strips, one simple tool and a bit of glue is all the equipment needed.
Janet Wilson has lived and breathed papercrafts since early childhood, when she was first given a pair of scissors and some paper to keep her occupied. Since then, she has become proficient in a wide range of paper skills including parchment craft, quilling, paper cutting, embossing, paper pricking, casting and sculpting. Other outside interests involve her in amateur dramatics, especially in the fields of music hall and costume design. Janet lives in Berkshire. She is also the author of the best-selling books Parchment Craft, The Art of Parchment Craft and the Craft of Quilling, all published by Search Press.
