Learn the craft of papercutting and get inspired by the stunning designs of artist Naomi Shiek. All you need to get started is a craft knife or a pair of scissors. Fold It & Cut It! provides all essential information, from basic techniques to creative step-by-step projects to ready-to-cut templates. Readers will learn the art of cutting detailed artworks, using shortcuts and tricks to make the project quicker and easier. What is unique to this book is that it is filled with papercut projects of symmetrical designs, which means double the impact in half the time.
