Paper Crafting with Carol Duvall is a hefty book filled with interesting paper crafts, most of them cards to give as gifts.
5 out of 10 stars. If you’re a card person, obviously this book will be more your cup of tea. I love making cards, but I was looking for a book that showed techniques on working with paper and not so many cards.
My favorite projects were pp 12-15, Woven Paper Cards, made by creating a simple woven paper and then stamping images on it, and pp 82-87, Pretty Pillow Boxes, those cute little boxes you sometimes get jewelry gifts in. I liked these two projects, but I can’t say I’d use any of the other projects in this book. There weren’t many techniques. In fact, one of the projects involves gluing a family photo to the top of a box when decoupaging it to the lid with Modge Podge would’ve worked better, so perhaps someone should teach Carol that technique.
5 out of 10 stars. Geared toward a paper crafter who loves to make and send homemade cards. Not much paper crafting. A better title would’ve been Paper Card Crafting with Carol Duvall.
