Scrapbooking, cardmaking, paper quilling, kirigami, and more.
Scrapbooking is a creative form of memory-keeping.
A collection of your most precious memories in an album or digital layout.
Most scrapbooks are “Project Life”. The term was brought to live by Becky Higgins.
“It’s called Project life because it’s about YOUR LIFE. Whatever your life is.
Whatever your stage of life. Whatever your circumstances. Whatever your lifestyle”.
Cardmaking is the craft of handmade/homemade greeting cards.
There are many different variations of handmade cards including decoupage, stamping, paper-stiching, and much much more.
Quilling or paper filigree is a papercraft using rolled paper-strips that are shaped, and glued together to create paper coils. These coils are used to form flowers, various ornamental patterns, embellishments and decorative 3D designs.
Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper (from Japanese “kiru” = to cut, “kami” = paper), rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami. Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut; cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami. Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes, pentagrams, or orchid blossoms. A difference between kirigami and the art of “pop-up” is that kirigami is made out of a single piece of paper that has been cut into a design. Pop ups can be made of several pieces glued together.
