Disclosure: I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
Paper Goods Projects is like art class for grown ups. The projects inside go way beyond the paper crafts that kids do in school (although some of them are appropriate for kids to try) and really can look good - if you're crafty. Some of the crafts in the book I just had a hard time getting to look as nice as the pictures in the book. But that's not the author's fault. I'm just not very crafty.
However, the book is well written, with great photographs, clear directions, and simple materials - paper tubes, coffee filters, doilies, boxes, cartons, and more. I actually had a lot of fun trying many of the projects, and my daughter did too (sadly, hers turned out as good as mine did). She absolutely loved the book!
