Winter Wonderland: Charming Winter Paper Sculptures for Parties, Holidays, and Home Decor
by Mary Beth Cryan
Skilled artist and papercrafter Mary Beth Cryan has released a new complete kit featuring 12 winter decorations, I was offered the chance to review it, and having come across Mary Beth’s work before, I was excited to find out what was involved.
It comes in a beautiful gift box with 12 winter themed paper projects for you to pop out and assemble (no cutting required). It also contains a book with photos of the projects, instructions, instructional illustrations, some information about me, a paper craft resource section, and additional templates that you can photocopy (so you can make the projects over and over after you use up the pop out pieces that are included in the kit). It also comes with a pre-assembled 3D squirrel ornament. And would you believe the whole kit is only $14.95?
The whole kit features lots of attention to detail, from the matt-finished pre-punched card models, to the well designed and spiral-bound book. It even comes with a pack of ribbons to hang the completed models from. If I had to pick on something, I’d have appreciated a small tube of wood glue in the pack, I had to use PVA craft glue, which wasn’t strong enough for some models.
Look at the pictures below to get an idea of the quality and thought that makes this kit a fun seasonal gift for any crafty people in the family!
The kit is available now from Barnes and Noble
