Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0816037191, Hardcover)

Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell is a papier-mâché artist, and many of the truly elegant ornaments she introduces here are based on that craft, but there are other crafts represented: decorations of punched aluminum and copper (including some very appealing copper place cards that can be used at any time), fruit pomanders, sugar-cube castles, Christmas crackers, beaded balls, and a really wonderful gingerbread mansion--and the list goes on. In all honesty, the "step-by-step" instructions are perhaps not as detailed as an eager, all-thumbs beginner might want, but all items are well illustrated in close-up photographs, and everything should be easy enough for fairly adept craftspeople. Crafts lovers will have tons of fun with this book.

This book contains 25 original projects drawn from the rich folk traditions from around the world. A wide variety of techniques and materials are used to create a stunning and exquisitely made range of decorations. Gift ideas include copper candle sconces and star-shaped votive candle holders, citrus pomanders and salt-dough baskets, plus specially painted giftwrap. To decorate your Christmas table, there are copper place cards and handmade crackers. And, if you wish to try your hand in the kitchen, there are recipes for snowflake cookies and a spectacular gingerbread house. With easy-to-follow step-by-step photographs, all the projects show how readily available and inexpensive materials can be transformed into beautifully decorative oblects that will give great pleasure and enjoyment to your friends and family at Christmas.… (more)
