This idea was actually spawned from a shopping trip to J.Crew. I took a picture of the art that they had displayed in their front window[picture below], and for months it fell out of my mind. For almost a year [sadly], I have been looking for something to display on a blank wall. I finally decided to take this into my own hands and make something.
I’m not sure how I discovered this awesome collection of packaging templates but I’m glad I did! Some professor or student at a japanese univeresity was nice enough to share all their packaging templates with the world! These are a few of my favorites and you can see all of them on their website . Every situation is covered!
A 2.5ft long papercraft replica of one of the world's fastest and most expensive super-cars, the Bugatti Veyron, consisting of 159 parts on 44 pages. I specifically designed this papercraft with detailed templates and instructions for any hobbyist to easily enjoy. If you enjoyed this free papercraft, please make a generous donation of any amount to support my efforts and to help me offer more projects such as this one in the near future. Thank you.

If you’ve been following me on Flickr for a while, you’ve probably seen this picture of Carambola Flowers before – I folded them ages ago! But since my Pro account is going to expire in a few days time (and I don’t feel like upgrading it again), a lot of my old photos won’t be displayed anymore. So I decided it would be a good idea to share the very best of them on my blog! These absolutely beautiful origami flowers were designed by Carmen Sprung and I just love them!
By Ann Martin Quilling, the coiling and shaping of narrow paper strips to create a design, has been around for years — hundreds, in fact. During the Renaissance, nuns and monks would roll gold-gilded paper remnants trimmed during the bookmaking process, and use them to decorate religious objects as an alternative to costly gold filigree. Quilling later became a pastime of 18th and 19th century young ladies in England, who would decorate tea caddies and pieces of furniture with paper filigree. The practice crossed the Atlantic with colonists, who added quilling to candle sconces and trays as home decorations. In all of that time, the process has remained very much the same, but quilling designs and specialty supplies have definitely caught up to the 21st century.
Last night's project, a basket made from old newspaper. After seeing this post at CraftStylish, I was inspired to try one. Maybe I'll keep books and remote controls in it. 1. I cut the folded edge off a couple sections of newspaper and then cut those pages in half lengthwise.
Supplies: 10″ foam wreath ($1 at Dollar Tree) Paperback novel ($1 at Dollar Tree – depending on the length of the book, you may need two) Brown and/or gray craft paint Glue gun & glue sticks Small strip of ribbon A few paper towels A few straight pins (optional) 1. Assemble your cast of characters. I felt slightly guilty about purchasing an author’s work from the Dollar Tree for the sole purpose of ripping up. I read a few pages of Loving Charity just to make sure I wasn’t about to destroy a literary classic; let me assure you that I wasn’t.
Hey look! Another tutorial! I seriously LOVED how these looked hanging along the back wall of our wedding tent.
The woven magazine coaster is something easy to make. It makes a great gift too. Many friends have asked how it is made. We have taken time to compile some photographed steps. This will help some of you who want to experiment... Take a piece of magazine spread and measure it by a quarter.

I love making things to decorate my room with, and this is one of my favourites. These little paper birds are so easy to make and look lovely hanging as a mobile! I like to hang them around my lampshade like this:
You might remember a gracefully quilled alphabet that sailed around the internet not long ago. It was made by Sabeena Karnik of Mumbai, who recently posted this beauty on her Behance page. Sabeena, a graphic artist, illustrator, and calligrapher, does mighty fierce paper cuttings as well, so don't miss those. Hey, it's still January... let the New Year celebrations continue!
