Skimming through the book and I caught myself wandering into the recycling bin and collecting papers which could be reused to create my own fancy paper craft! Just a glance into PAPERCRAFT: Design and Art with Paper by Gestalten, and you’ll end up being as manic as I was before I started writing this article. It wasn’t more than a skim which led to these results!
Once I carefully reviewed the book I realized that one material which is found abundantly almost everywhere around us and that is no other than paper was transformed and used creatively to generate endless art and craft design possibilities.
