Craft Projects for Specialty Papers

Craft Projects for Specialty Papers
One the most simple and fun craft projects is paper plane making. All you need is some printable paper, markers, scissors and tape. Gather your kids and their friends and have each team build and decorate a paper airplane, or if you have time a whole fleet of paper planes. Spend time decorating them and trying out a few different designs. Once the planes are built, see which one flies the best, which one is the prettiest, and which need to be redesigned. It’s a lot of fun and as an added bonus you can hang the planes up with string or combine them to make a mobile.
There is also paper hat making. This pastime is very popular in Russia and the Ukraine. Kids make hats out of paper all the time and there are many different folding patterns all sorts of headgear online. You can make hats from colored paper and decorate them with glitter, stickers and other fun things. Try to use heavyweight paper so the hats last. Despite popular perception wearing a homemade paper hat is very cool. An arts and craft is one of the great American pastimes. It is on the few things enjoyed by both young and old, male and female, rich and poor. This enduring hobby is not only fun, it’s healthy.
The other type of bead that is also effective for this Christmas craft is called the tri bead or propeller bead. It has three rounded bumps arranged around the stringing hole. Like the sunburst beads, the tri beads interlock when strung consecutively. For the most sparkly and attractive Christmas ornaments, get tri beads and/or sunburst beads in translucent colors of red, green, and clear. The tri beads can also be found in metallic gold and silver which can be used in this Christmas craft project as well.
