This book is packed full of simple
beautiful designs.
It's amazing what can be done with thread
and paper.

The book is packed full of designs that
can be used throughout the year.
Not only are there are designs for cards
there are also designs for gifts
and wrapping.
The book also provides you with what you
need to know to design your own projects.

The book makes it so simple to make
the projects and create something magnificent.
It truly is special what can be created.

If you've never embroidered then I would
highly recommend this book.
If you do embroider then this is a different
way you can use it to make new and
interesting projects.

The book is split into 5 sections;
  1. Drawing with Paper Embroidery
  2. Writing with Paper Embroidery
  3. Creating with Paper Embroidery
  4. The Foundations of Paper Embroidery
  5. Templates

The first section covers everything from Birthday
and Christmas cards to Notebooks.

The 2nd section has everything from a paper clock
to a welcome sign.

The 3rd section has everything from gift boxes
to bookmarks.

The 4th section shows and talks you through
everything from what tools you will need
to teaching you each of the stitches.

The 5th section is packed full of all the templates
you need to create the amazing projects.

I would highly recommend this book!
It's a perfect addition to any crafters collection.
