From All Things Paper:
We're a bit overdue in celebrating Christmas in July, but the dog days of August are just as good a time to get a jump on holiday crafting. Luckily, British paper crafter Emily Dawe's brand new book for Search Press, Paper Christmas, was recently released on this side of the Pond and it's chock full of stylishly simple ways to do just that.
The book begins with an introduction followed by essential information about papers, materials and tools, techniques, and basic tips. The projects are divided into categories - Gift-Giving, Decorations, and Festive Fun. You'll be cutting, gluing, heat embossing, glittering, and humming Christmas carols in no time!
Many of the projects are ideal for beginners and most can be enjoyed by children. I suspect teachers, after school minders, and scout leaders will happily turn to Emily's ideas come autumn.
