Editorial Reviews

"The pretty pattern inside security envelopes, big cardboard boxes and even beat-down file folders will be met with new eyes after flipping through "The Paper Playhouse: Awesome Art Projects for Kids Using Paper, Boxes and Books". Oakland author and mother to two boys, Katrina Rodabaugh demonstrates the ease of fashioning playful art, decor and interactive toys with scissors, glue, paint and perhaps the box of cereal the kiddos polished off that morning. "Once you turn your attention to the beautiful paper scraps available to you, you will quickly build a hefty stash," she writes. Projects work for parties, playrooms and everyday makery, such as simple paper garlands or festive paper crowns decorated with washi tape or triangle block prints. Her budget creations also include a Volkswagen Bus box, a cottage playhouse and pretty much the cutest cardboard dollhouse imaginable, complete with a pitched, fringed roof, modern "wallpaper," faux bois paper floors and a mini garland to pull it all together." - San Francisco Chronicle Website
