Paper Feathers: Simple to Make

Paper Feathers: Simple to Make
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. We made over-sized paper flowers in bright pinks and plums and added some huge paper feathers into the mix to finish the over-the-top look. They were so pretty I knew I had to create a post for you on making a smaller version of these simple paper feathers. You can use them for gift toppers, a wedding boutonniere, put a few in a shadow box to hang on your wall, or. . . make a paper feather wreath for your summertime decor. Stay tuned for the wreath post later this week. These feathers are very simple and would make a fun craft project for kids.

DIY Paper Feathers in Gold Last week I was working on some new Christmas and Winter Holiday projects and started experimenting with gold paper and gold foil to make some festive paper feathers. Though they are perfect for some upcoming holiday posts, I am also loving them for Fall. Of course they make an gorgeous Autumn gift topper and these tiny paper sculptures are so pretty I framed three in a shadow box to hang in my studio. 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.

We have received amazing feedback for our customized printable monogram. Crafting At Ginsdesk Using paper and creating stuff out of paper is what I fancy most. The other day I had to send a card to my friend along with a gift. Now that she has already seen so much of my quilling work, I wanted to do something different and that is when I came across this new style of art. I have a lot of multi- colored sheets and mostly end up using them only in cards. This time surprisingly and very happily I have to say I came across these colorful feathers.
