3-d-papercraft projects (or paper art projects) are everywhere these
days. They are a lot of fun to make and the variety and uses for them
is endless. They can be practical, great for gifts and home decor, or made just for fun. I loved making the paper hyacinths shown below, for example, and they are still decorating my home.
Paper can be made into 3-d-papercraft items so easily if you have a good plan and are capable of a few deft folds. Don't be afraid to experiment too and discover your own versions of off-the-page stunners.
I have a few projects in mind to show you here and will be adding to this page as I discover more ways to make things. Here are some ideas I have road tested already:
Commemorate the fallen soldiers of WWII with a poppy flower wreath made with your paper craft supplies
Psst! Remember to make some 3-d-Papercraft Projects for Christmas! Start early and you will have time to make some beautiful dimensional items. If you don't have time to create all the elements for a wreath, Stampin' Up! often has beautiful kits available with all the hard work done for you. All you have to do is assemble your kit wreath, your way! Check out SusanSalutations to see the current kits.
Make a special package for whole chocolate bar!
Who doesn't need a special gift box for those very important people and occasions?
These 3-d papercraft items could be used as Christmas decorations or to add some charm to any event or room.
Remember that Stampin' Up! has a Gift Bag Board, a Gift Box Board and am Envelope Punch Board to help you make your own. Check the catalogue in the right hand column to see if the boards are still available. See more details about them in Papercraft Tools.
If you have made a 3-d-papercraft project, do become an inspiration to me and to others by sharing it with me here.
Do you make 3-d PaperCraft items? I'd love to see your work. Please do share below.
