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.
