Wanna Get Crafty? Best Paper Crafts For 2016!

Thank you, Carolyn Clarke and Paper Mart-paper crafts for these great ideas!coloring for adults

We may live in a digital age, but paper still prevails when it comes to crafting. Paper crafts are an entertaining and creative way to express your artistic individuality. Here are some of the best paper crafts for 2016:

Coloring Books Coloring books are back in a big way. These aren’t the run-of-the-mill coloring books for small children; instead, they are specifically designed for adults. What makes them so fun is that they’re actually fairly challenging. The images feature intricate designs and concentrated coloring areas for a more stunning visual and stimulating coloring experience. You can use colored pens or pencils to create your masterpiece.

Gift Boxes A great way to spruce up gift boxes or storage containers is to use paper crafts paper martold wrapping paper or repurposed vintage wallpaper. Most of us have reams of unused wrapping paper that we don’t know what to do with but just can’t seem to get rid of. The perfect way to use those small amounts of paper is to create custom gift boxes.

Order a few plain gift boxes in various sizes from a paper supply site like Paper Mart and decorate the lids with old wrapping paper. You can even search for vintage prints at flea markets and yard sales to create your own unique gift or knick-knack boxes.

Handmade Cards Creating and sending your own handmade cards is a great way to let your loved ones know just how much you care. Use thick card stock paper and crease down the middle. You can use a pair of craft scissors to give it a fun edge, or simply tear the edges to give it a rustic feel.

Don’t stop there—use a nice fabric to add an accent to the front of the card. A lace bow, a small ribbon flower, or a heart cut from rich velvet fabric or a patterned muslin can really set your card apart. It’s a simple way to let someone know you’re thinking of them and it’s sure to be a treasured gift.

Don’t Forget the Kids Of course, some of the best crafts are the ones made paper mart paper craftsby children. Their enthusiasm and infectious energy can be the perfect starting point for some fun paper crafts. We like to keep it simple and classic when crafting with kids: a nice assortment of colored paper, some child-friendly scissors, school glue, and a few embellishments like sequins, feathers, or pipe cleaners are all they need to let their inner artists shine. Before you know it, they’ll be creating landscapes, fantasy scenes, and more.

Have Fun Remember, the point of crafting is to be creative and have fun. Let your imagination run wild and see what you can create. There’s simply no end to the best paper crafts this year.
