It's amazing what you can produce using four basic methods - papier mache, rolling, folding and quilling. You won't need specialist tools or equipment, and will even be able to use recycled materials, such as newspaper, gift wrap, envelopes and candy wrappers. Denise Brown's 35 beautiful projects offer something for everyone, with easy beginner ideas as well as more complicated pieces, in a whole range of styles. Make crazily coloured and funky shaped quilled earrings, or a classic shimmering pearl necklace and matching ring using rolled paper strips. The striking red velvet necklace and bracelet are made from papier-mache beads, while the fun pompom ring and necklace are created simply by folding. Each project has clear, step-by-step artworks to explain the process and the techniques section for each method will teach you all you need to know. With plenty of inspiration and guidance, you'll soon be able to experiment with each technique to create your own one-off pieces.
