Part 4 of the Surface Design Bookshelf is now posted on the Make it in Design Blog. Both of the titles featured are of interest to papercrafters.
The first book gives advice on packaging for craftsellers with an emphasis on handcrafted "krafty kraft paper" looks. The fabric design title clues you in on how to create original pattern designs. Although the content deals with fabric, you can use the same techniques to make printed designs for giftwrap or scrapbooking papers. In addition to digital design generation, screen printing, hand block printing, and letterpress printing techniques are discussed. Check out the Make it in Design Blog for further details.
