Paper Crafts: Paper Folding and Origami Fun Kit

Origami is a fun craft to do when you have instructions that are easy to follow. It is less frustrating for beginners when the instructions are simple, clear, and build on the skills. We found the Origami Fun Kit for Beginners is a wonderful starter kit priced at $18, which has three books to make origami animals, birds and easy designs.

Origami Toys: Fish and Bird

My children and I really enjoyed learning and following the instructions from Paul Jackson's Origami Toys That Tumble, Fly and Spin book. I am glad the book had a pouch with 60 colourful origami paper to get us started right away.

Quilled card

Quilling is so much fun and we can make lots of creative things.  I made this card to give as a birthday card.

I used the tools and paper from here.

To make this flower, I first made...
8 teardrop shaped purple shapes
1 orange tight circle
1 eye shape with green for the leaf 
and quilled half the paper to a loose circle for the stem 

Positioned it, where I wanted then lightly glued and placed it on the card.

Paper quilling or paper filigree

I am very happy about my first quilling project :) It was easier than I thought because of the clear instructions from Quilled creations. Everything I need was in the basic kit, which made the project fun. All I needed was glue, tweezer and a toothpick.

This basic kit includes 1 slotted quilling tool, circle sizer ruler, 130 quilling paper strips, 2 cards, 2 envelopes and 2 tags. This kit is all you need if you want to learn the skills. The kit includes a handy guide that teaches all the techniques and methods.
Paper quilling or paper filigree is made simple and straightforward with Quilled creations' easy instructions and tools that make it so much fun. I had hours of fun even my children were excited and tried it out.

Quilled creations also has individual kits to make special cards and frames i.e. the Iris kit and love birds. The kits include step-by-step instructions, quilling paper, circle cut-out tri-fold card and envelope.
If you are interested in learning or finding the materials to learn this craft check out the Quilled creation website. Once you make one, you will know that it is not hard as it looks: even for those of us who have trouble handling delicate paper and designing :)
