Oh how we love paper crafts. Paper crafts for preschoolers. Paper ideas for kids. Paper DIYs for grown ups. Paper crafts for young and old!!! We love paper. And we love paper so much because it is cheap and it is SO SO SOOOO versatile. Since starting the Red Ted Art YouTube channel we have been adding more and more paper crafts to the blog – mainly because I have come to realise how paper really is a universal craft material that most people have access to AND because I love how very very versatile it really is. We also have a fantasic Crafts with Paper YouTube Playlist, that you may enjoy watching! And do follows on Facebook for updated information!
This page is a designed to help direct you to the paper craft of your choice. So it is really just a place to help share all our paper crafts categories and help point you in the right direction. I was tempted to put all our paper crafts in one long list, but that would be really hard to navigate.
If you have any suggestions of how you would like me to reoganise this page, please do let me know. In the meantime… click on the images below to help you find the area of interest and choice!
