    From eye-catching pom-poms to pretty garlands and stunning giant flowers, you'll want to make every one of these wonderful paper decorations. Begin with the classic pom-poms - popular in the 60s and 70s, but enjoying a stylish revival today. Make them in different sizes and colours for a real impact. Learn, too, how to make honeycomb balls and rosette snowflakes - all hanging decorations that will look great hung from the ceiling, in a window or on a Christmas tree. In chapter 2, you'll find garlands and bunting - why not try the cupcake garland, using cupcake cases to sit around fairy lights and look like twinkling flowers, or have a go at the vintage book bunting, that would add character at a themed party or in a child's bedroom? Finally, create impressive centrepieces - giant roses and daffodils, a flower wreath made from coffee filters and waxed floating lilies are among the striking designs. The projects use a variety of paper materials, including tissue, card and crepe paper, as well as recycled magazine pages and wrapping paper - and no specialist craft experience is needed. Step-by-step photography will show you exactly what to do. Plus, every template you'll need is included at the back of the book.
