The Paper Playhouse
Awesome Art Projects for Kids Using Paper, Boxes, and Books
Artist Katrina Rodabaugh shares her artistic training and up-cycling sensibility in this unique and inspired book, The Paper Playhouse. With simple techniques including sculpture, printmaking, bookbinding, collage, and even ideas for public art, families work through step-by-step instructions while using imagination and budding aesthetics. This book goes beyond the typical paper craft project to include contemporary design references like Mid-Century Modern dollhouses, VW buses, paper monsters, costumes and masks, and the classic lemonade stand--all made with unique style and flair! Focused around surprising and easily accessibly materials like shipping boxes, shoeboxes, junk mail envelopes, newspapers, maps, found books, and other paper ephemera, and with stunning photography by Leslie Sophia Lindell, The Paper Playhouse has 22 projects aimed at inspiring children to create amazing paper crafts. A beautiful gallery provides further project inspirations from Lisa Congdon, Maya Donenfeld, Heather Smith Jones, Courtney Cerutti, Gracia Haby, Mati Rose McDonough, and many more!

What Reviewers Are Saying
"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"
