Paper Art

I seem to have developed a love of all things paper (quite handy considering my shop!), so choosing a few of my favourite Paper-based makers seeemed to be an obvious choice for this week’s theme. As an everyday item which, to be honest, hasn’t exactly got the most exciting regular role as white office paper or newspapers that end up all scrunched up and rather unloved by the end of the day, I’m often amazed at the creativity that can be found using this material! From madly coloured Papiermache frogs to delicate little papercut Butterflies, welcome to the un-ending world of Paper art!

Click on the images and take a look at all the other great items these Folksy sellers have to offer too!

Folksy Seller Quite Contrary Crafts provides unique personalised and regular hand cut cards for all occasions. The designs have a recognizable quirky style, and offer something a little different to brighten your day! I also create framed Papercuts, and have expanded with a range of Mugs and coasters using two of my most popular designs for all the Tea and Cake-a-holics out there.

    Oliver the frog is very pleased to be featured today. He loves Friday’s more than he love flies, which is quite a lot actually.
