I've received my copy of Mary Beth Cryan's Winter Wonderland papercraft kit and here's a nice little review:
This cute kit comes in a beautifully designed box which includes a fully-colored instruction book, 25 pre-punched project sheets and ribbons. Since the parts are precut, all you have to do is pop 'em out, fold and glue.
There are 12 winter-themed paper sculptures for you to build (blustery birdhouse, icy cool skates, scrappy squirrel, 3D snowflake, winter woodland deer, merry mittens, fun and frosty toboggan, heartwarming hot cocoa, woody pine cones, friendly forest fauns, chilly snowman and the hooting owl).
My personal favorite would have to be the 3D snow flake. Each of the project has easy to follow instructions that even kid can build one.
Another good thing about this kit is that the instruction book includes the templates for the 12 paper sculptures. That means you can photocopy the templates onto card stock and make the models again and again.
This fun papercraft kit is available for $14.95 in stores and only $13.45 at Barnes and Noble. This sure would make a nice gift this holiday. It's also a perfect way to introduce someone to the art of paper crafting.
