    A DIY book that adapts my fine art paper-cuts into 15 projects for the craft market.
Simply Paper Cutting
A DIY Paper Craft Book
A fan of Japanese, Mid-Century Modern, Scandinavian, and Arts and Crafts decorative pattern, Anna Bondoc developed her own paper cutting technique by cutting graphic motifs into a single sheet, then adhering a second, third, and sometimes fourth paper layer, cutting shapes within each sheet as she went. Though she initially produced art prints, she realized she could apply the technique to just about any surface to elevate picture frames, note cards, journals, gift boxes, into works of paper art.

In a warm, encouraging, former teacher's voice, Anna provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for effective paper cutting, and shows eager crafters how to use a knife as a drawing instrument to create any manner of gift or home decor.

Project categories include stationery, gifts, tabletop, fine art, and special occasions. She also explains her "recycling by design" technique in which cut-out pieces left behind can be recycled beautifully to enhance gifts.
