HOW TO MAKE A PAPER STRIP CHRISTMAS TREE
When it comes to design, originality in the materials you use can make all the difference. One item known for being super versatile is paper – and the diverse range of texture, color and size of paper can allow for almost any project. Along with folding paper to create a 3D design, you can use stamping, coloring, dyeing and other techniques to create beautiful effects.
Papercrafts are wonderful for encouraging creativity and artiness, as well as developing design and engineering skills too! This paper strip Christmas tree craft below involves cutting and gluing and is perfect for preschool and elementary aged kids.
