After giving readers the basic know-how to cutting their own intricate shapes from paper, the author guides them, step-by-step through over 20 projects that incorporate the silhouette designs. The papercut shapes are in themes such as sea life, small animals, botanical and classic figures and are used in a variety of projects from tea-light lanterns, to gift boxes and cards, to party decor, wall art and much more. While instruction for cutting their own shapes by hand is covered, the reader is also introduced to the option of using a die-cut machine. The author has been working closely with Accugraphic, the maker of the Klic-n-Kut and Craft Robo. This manufacturer plans on selling this book on their site, where readers can download files for their cutter.
