Paper Crafts for all Seasons and Holidays Such as Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas

Paper is probably the most versatile and universal material available. We are confronted daily with it. Maybe it is the newspaper we read in the morning, the box holding the cereal we eat, the bill that arrives in the mail, the catalog with the pretty new dress we would like to order or the book on our bedside table. These things are necessary in our lives but do not show the creative potential of paper. These projects are dedicated to showing that paper is more than just pratical. It can be so decorative and fun to use. Several projects will have an extra step-by-step tutorial with pictures on a separate page to make them easy for children to understand as well.
