Try These Very Easy Paper Crafts

Featured this week: Cute animal bookmarks! Easy paper craft!

  • Cardstock Animal Bookmarks - Make animal-shaped bookmarks from cardstock. Just print, color, cut and bend to make these cute bookmarks for yourself or to give as gifts. This is a good project for kids to practice coloring and cutting. It is also a quick craft for adults to make as gifts for the kids and grandkids!

    Come back on Wednesday for a new craft treat and later in the week for a new Friday Fun craft!

  • This Week's Friday Fun: A handmade gift for Mother's Day!

    Layered Soaps - In this project, learn how to make soaps with different colored layers using the melt-and-pour soapmaking technique. You can create guest soaps in colors to match your kitchen or bath decor or to give as a special gift. The whole family can have fun making soaps.

Featured last week: Add a pop-up to your handmade card!

  • Step Pop-Up Cards - Make a pop-up greeting card for a variety of occasions. See how easy it is to make a step pop-up mechanism, also sometimes called a platform or double-slit pop-up. Once you learn this technique, it's a simple matter to create pop-up cards of your own design.

  • Wednesday Treat: More step pop-up cards to make!

    Last week's Wednesday Treat was a set of More Step Pop-Up Cards! Everyone enjoys receiving a card with a pop-up inside. It's easier than you might think to add a pop-up to one of your handmade greeting cards. To get you started, three cards with step pop-ups are included in this project.

  • Last Week's Friday Fun: Make a picture to give to Mom!

    Paper Mosaic - Learn how to make paper mosaics to decorate crafts and give as gifts, while recycling the paper scraps from other projects. Make one for Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa.
