The gifted Larissa from mmmcrafts is here sharing her amazing talents with an unbelievable 3D paper owl. Larissa writes… Left: art made with this tutorial, Right: art made with alternate colors (see note at the end of the tutorial) Hey, Craft Campers! I’m delighted to participate in this summer kid-craft lineup. This 3D paper owl art project is for you and your crafty older kids, say around 11-ish years and up, who can wield a pair of scissors, handle smallish pieces and follow placement instructions carefully. Moms: You can definitely young this down by cutting out the shapes for younger kids, and skipping the pop dots and folding. Alrighty young crafters, here’s what you will need to make the nighttime owl pictured above: Got all that together? Step 1: Print out the pattern pieces! Make a test print of the first page on regular paper and measure the guide box with a ruler to be sure you are printing at the correct size. Step 2: Score all your folds. Step 4: Punch out some circles.

They are great party decorations because unlike regular candle tea lights, these are safe. This paper project decorates a tea light with a paper flower design made out of card stock and is easy and fast to make. These flower would look absolutely gorgeous on a buffet table or as a table decoration.

Hexagonal Stacking Boxes The inspiration for this week’s project comes from the Japanese stacking octagonal box kit shown above. We previously used a similar technique to demonstrate a business card box with traditional elegance. We now present a surreal modern makeover for Japanese papercraft boxes by using (recycling) paperboard packaging. We follow the same basic construction techniques, but simplify it by eliminating the paper coverings and decorations. In their place, we use paperboard from cereal, cracker and cookie packaging.

DIY Paper Feathers A few weeks ago I was helping my friend create her hat decoration for the Kentucky Derby party we were going to be attending together.

They were so pretty I knew I had to create a post for you on making a smaller version of these simple paper feathers.
