The dust cover notes read:
Paper cutting is a simple creative art well within the scope of young fingers; it is ideal for classroom projects, requiring the minimum of skill and materials.
The exceptionally clear diagrams and lucid instructions show in step-by-step detail how the basic paper strips and squares are folded, marked and then cut out to produce a wide variety of novel designs. Newspaper is the standard material used but there are suggestions for extra effects using coloured or foil papers.
There are ideas for linking the cut-out shapes to illustrate stories, for example, the Pied Piper of Hamelyn, and the author gives basic patter outlines for several stories.
