When paper was first invented in China over 2000 years ago, it was used for cooking, wrapping, building and even for making clothes! But there is so much more you can do with this versatile material --- such as creating one-of-a-kind toys, gifts, cards and jewelry. This Jumbo Book features an introduction to different kinds of paper, special folding techniques and easy-to-follow directions for folding, cutting, gluing and weaving over 50 paper projects!

Crafts include • fan earrings • paper beads • woven baskets • a glow lamp
