    Hi all. For my last Birthday, (50th Sshhhh!) I was given a book by my son and his girlfriend. It is called called "Creative paper cutting" and is by Cheong-ah Hwang. It is the book that I used to make the humming bird on Mrs.3d's Valentine card this year. Very good projects, all acessable to all levels of skill, I absolutely love it. Have a look at the authors site papernoodle.com. for finished paper sculptures. The book is available on Amazon but also in Hobbycraft, about 14.00, worth every penny! Loads of photos at stages and very clear, easy to follow instructions.

    Dave.

    Thanks for the recommendation.

    Those humming birds were wonderful.

    Thank you for that, it was my first ever paper sculpture of that type and wasn't intended for the card, just as a time filler, then the Val's Day card seed was sewn. The book is on the shelf in our Hobbycraft so would assume they all have it. Pop in, have a look through, see what you think. Amazon might have a "Look inside" on their website.

    They did have a look in section on another site I found, got some great easy to follow methods by the looks of it. Really impressive that it was your first paper sculpture and a great reason to use them :-)
