A limited batch of signed copies are available! Paper Pom-poms and other Party Decorations 35 step-by-step projects to make with tissue, paper, and card Juliet Carr Published by CICO Books, September 10th 2015, £12.99 inc delivery to UK addresses. From eye-catching pom-poms to pretty garlands and stunning giant flowers, you’ll want to make every one of these wonderful paper decorations. Begin with the classic pom-poms and make them in different sizes and colours for a real impact. Learn, too, how to make honeycomb balls and rosette snowflakes - all hanging decorations that will look great hung from the ceiling, in a window or on a Christmas tree. Why not try the cupcake garland, using cupcake cases to sit around fairy lights and look like twinkling flowers, or have a go at the vintage book bunting, that would add character at a themed party or in a child’s bedroom? Finally, create impressive centrepieces - giant roses and daffodils, a flower wreath made from coffee filters and waxed floating lilies are among the striking designs. The projects use a variety of paper materials, including tissue, card and crepe paper, as well as recycled easy to make craft projects from magazine pages and wrapping paper - and no specialist craft experience is needed. Projects are quick and easy, especially with step-by-step photos to guide you along the way. Juliet Carr set up her own business, Paperpoms UK (www.paperpoms.co.uk) in 2009.
