            This beautiful book is a how-to-guide helping children to be calm, mindful, and live in the moment every day. In a world where children are increasingly attached to their screens, and their memories often are only held digitally, this book offers a creative analogue solution. It ...is a fun how-to guide to engaging with the world around us through mindfulness activities, first lessons in big ideas, and journalling tips. Little ones are taken through activities, from physical and mental exercises to crafting and writing tasks, which teach them to value the little things in their lives. They learn crafts to calm a busy mind, discover Buddhist meditation, and explore the outdoors mindfully. Children will be inspired to transform the space around them into a zone of zen, from decorating with Japanese origami to tidying their room Marie Kondo-style. Many ideas encourage kids to make the most of mental memories or old photographs, creating something physical to remember special events, friends, or holidays, so memories aren't restricted to pictures on a screen. Each activity and thought encourages a sense of calm or wellbeing, which helps children to live in the moment and make memories in the real world. The book features a strong environmental awareness, too, with activities encouraging sustainability and recycling as much as possible. Beautiful, soothing colours and a fun scrapbook aesthetic combine to make a how-to guide to cherish.

            Paper is the perfect material for all kinds of arts and crafts. In this book of 50 projects, Helen Hiebert offers an accessible guide to turning a flat sheet of paper into useful and beautiful art. She explores decorative paper techniques like marbling, stamping, and stenciling, ...and then delves deeper, presenting 12 different dimensional techniques like origami, cutting, folding, quilling, stretching, weaving, and pop-ups for creating dozens of projects. Each section of the book provides a history of the technique, an overview of the process, several how-to projects culled from Hiebert's own studio as well as the studios of some of the leading contemporary paper artists, and a gallery of works to show the technique's range of possibilities. Hiebert suggests a unique paper for each project and describe the qualities that make it suitable for the particular technique, as well as practical information on tools, materials, and where to purchase papers. The Art of Papercraft includes an overview of the history of hand-papermaking as well stories that highlight interesting paper arts and endeavors including Japanese balloon bombs of WWII; paper wallets made from banana fiber in Micronesia; and a nonprofit organization that sells origami ornaments to bring clean water to those who need it. Filled with inspiring projects, this book hits the nexus of design and art for people who love crafting with paper to make uniquely delicate creations.
