I don't know much about paper crafting (specifically terms and the type of tools used) even though I've been experimenting with different forms of paper craft for a while now. I thought this was a great intro into technique, even if the projects themselves were kind of lackluster. See one my interpretation of the Tissue Paper Collage Gift Container found on page 50 here: http://missingthemuse.blogspot.com/20...
Went through it looking specifically for info on cutting techniques (there was nothing); however, lots of other paper projects that could be fun to do. the problem is with the examples - they were kind of tacky-looking and not very inspiring. The only part I would revisit is about working on Washi technique.
I've looked through this but will come back to it at a later time. I think a lot of the projects are things that I'd like to do, or try to do. Although it did look as though the instructions could've been broken down further in places, and laid out better, but we'll see.
