40 Creative Paper Crafts Ideas

One of my favorite DIY past times is so underrated by so many. Not sure how more people don’t have a love for paper crafts. How about you? If you don’t know by now how so many things there are that you can make from a simple piece of paper, you are about to learn. When you don’t feel like getting out a ton of supplies or making something super complicated, paper can be your new crafting best friend. I keep a good supply of pretty papers on hand just for this purpose, in fact. I love making cards, envelopes, wall art and 3d creations of all shapes and sizes. People love receiving these as gifts, too. There is something about knowing that item was made from only paper and by you, something quite thoughtful and charming. Get your scissors and ruler out, maybe a little bit of paper glue, and start making some of the most lovely DIY paper crafts ever. 40 of them for you to choose from, so happy crafting!
