Gems and Umbrellas! Paper Craft: New Blog Tutorials

We have two fun paper crafting activities for you to try this week. Go for a look through your recycling or old magazines to turn old paper into new crafting projects.

If you like bling and shine, try our first new activity: 3D paper diamonds.

Using a template, you can fold these to make lovely decorations. Why not use patterned paper, or decorate the paper first before you fold it?

These would look great on ribbons, or on a string together as bunting.

Click here for the tutorial.

For another paper craft project, try our second tutorial: paper balls.

Like the gems, these will also make lovely bunting if put on a ribbon.

After learning the method, Vanessa will then show you how to adapt this project to make a wee umbrella which can be added to a card.

Enjoy your crafting. Please send us a photo if you make either of these - we love to see your projects.
