Michelle Romo (2010) | Find it on The Book Depository
Paper Wonderland is a craft book filled with thirty-two adorable toys to cut out and build, all you'll need is some scissors, tape and glue! Alongside the toy step-by-steps are plenty of beautiful illustrations and pretty patterned papers to inspire readers to get creative.
The idea here is that you can use the papers included in the book's pages to create your paper toys however as I read a library copy of the book I was obviously unable to cut up the pages. Luckily there's a way around this as you can also download free PDFs of the templates so that you can make the designs as many times as you like!
One of the best things about picking up this crafty title was that I discovered the other work of author Michelle Romo by browsing her website. Crowded Teeth - www.crowdedteeth.com - includes her impressive portfolio of designs, including collaborations with brands such as Disney and Sanrio. There's even an online shop where you can find her cute illustrations printed on everything from clothing to stationery.
I'll be sharing a DIY video inspired by this book in a few weeks time so keep an eye out if you're interested in these cute projects!
