"Readers who have ever wondered what to do with all of the leftover paper scraps, wrapping paper, boxes, and ribbons from past events will revel in these projects they can create with recycled paper.

Booklist - J.B. Petty

"With more than 50 out-of-the-ordinary paper creations, this is certain to be a hit with girls, their friends, parents, group leaders, and teachers. The materials: ordinary stuff that is likely laying around the house already or that could be purchased at a nearby store—not, as is so often the case with such guides, esoteric materials only found at specialty stores. . . .Craft books abound, but this one looks especially productive and painless." - Booklist
