Nowadays, it's common to see kirigami-based greetings card filling up the gift store racks, while Pinterest is full of inspiring examples of paper sculptures crafted only with folds and cuts. Requiring nothing more than paper, a knife, and your imagination, it's easy to see why this is an excellent craft for both the beginner and novice.

In this book, crafters will work through 24 intricate designs that are accessible and easy to master even for beginners. The beautiful projects in this book are testament to the author's unwavering passion and lifelong experience with kirigami. Having created several paper craft books and projects as part of her work as the creative director for Marie Claire Idees magazine, Descamps' love for this fantastical craft shines through each spread in her latest book.
Guys, no joke this is a cool book. I have always been interested in papercrafting. It looks so complicated but this book gives you templates and step by step instructions to make 24 paper crafts.
There are so many cool ones. I need to get some material but I am dying to make a lantern that I can stick an LED candle in.
