Careful, papercrafts may become a preoccupation - a good one.

Playing with papercrafts is something unique and different. The supplies (and skills) are readily available, cheap and the results make for a big impact.

Here are the things you will need:
*        - Paper - Anywhere from 32lb to card stock (65lb) should do the trick
*        - Craft knife and cutting mat
*        - Glue - I use a glue stick and a tooth pick for tricky corners (I love PRITT glue, works best so far)
*        - Ruler and an open safety pin - Use these tools to score your fold lines. You can also use an old dried up pen
*        - Time and patience
I recommend starting with simpler models as they are easier to make. Most of my papercrafts are mainstream family friendly so they will give you enough practice to build up your experience. 

WANNA TRY and PRACTICE! Right click on these 2 templates to make this 'thing' see picture after template. (part of the rings and things collection going up soon on my Sofsdesigns etsy shop.) 

You will need to right click and open in new tab to get them 'full size'. Once you have saved both template on your computer, you can print (same size) on any color card stock paper you like. Use these simple instruction.

After a few of these pilot projects, you may decide to try some of the really cool and more difficult projects.

The designs can be used as toys, decorations, and as gift boxes or `greeting cards`. There are so many uses you are sure to find new ones all the time. All of the designs that you will find here are originals - created by me - and have been tried in real life.

Have fun making stuff…you`ll feel happy and live longer!


 Bisous my friends!
