introducing Folding Trees

It’s finally time to unveil the first of my secret projects! Folding Trees is a new international collaboration that I have set up together with Eve in New Zealand (also my co-conspirator in the Crochet Along).

Folding Trees - the best tutorials and paper creations online

There is a huge variety of crafts that can be made from a humble piece of paper: origami, paper art, quilling, papercutting, recycled paper crafts – to name just a few. Our aim with Folding Trees is to collect the best tutorials we have found on the net, inspire people by highlighting amazing paper creations from talented artists and crafters, and share our own paper crafts and tutorials.

On the site today, I am sharing a tutorial to make these puffy origami lucky stars from strips cut from magazine pages:

We invite people to share links to their own tutorials or point us to inspirational paper crafts they have seen. Everyone is also welcome to join the Folding Trees Flickr group and share photos of all their crafty paper projects with us! We will feature some of the submissions on the site.

Eve and I hope you’ll like our new project, and we’re looking forward to seeing you at FoldingTrees.com!

    Fabulous! The new site looks like great fun! And I just happen to have a jar that needs filled with some little paper stars… I can’t wait to see what else will “unfold” in the future! :o)
