In "Grandma’s Magic Scissors," Grandma (aka Linda S. Day) seems to have found a way to keep children of all ages mesmerized with the ancient art of paper cutting as she tells stories in the schools. Perhaps you remember as a child folding a piece of paper in half and trying to cut out hearts or snowflakes. It was pure magic when you opened your folded piece of paper and found that you had created art.
Now you can make all those great paper cuttings and more from the ideas in Day’s new book, "Grandma’s Magic Scissors: Paper Cutting from A -Z " (©2006, ISBN 1-890905-68-2, $14.95, Day to Day Enterprises). Grandma believes that inside every plain piece of paper is a unique design just waiting to take shape—all it requires is a little imagination, a few folds, and a couple of cuts with your Magic Scissors to make characters, castles and more for hours of pleasure.
