The applications for working with paper are endless.
Yesterday I mentioned that I used to make alot of cards as a kid. Actually... I still make cards.
It's just fun... and it's also one of the most affordable crafts there is.

Of course... paper crafts in general... are really affordable to make... especially if you use recycled materials.
The photo collage above shows some examples of things you can make... from stuff I've done (except for the paper cutting which my daughter did) over the past few years. They include... drawing... collage... ATC (art trading cards)... mixed media projects... iris paper folding... paper cutting (Scherenschnitte)... monotype printing...
But the possibilities are endless. You can make paper lanterns... anything origami...  window screens...
the list goes on.

Lately... I have been exploring the applications of paper in jewelry.
Paper beads... collage and mixed media pieces... and more.
As always... more to come :)
