Paper Crafts

So, I want to try doing different papercrafts at least once every two days. I picked up some card stock from michaels for $4. (Scrap packs are awesome). And I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for these? There are a lot of different sizes:

- 5 in x 5 in.
- 7 in x 5 in.
- 7 in x 7 in.
- 8 in x 7 in.
- and 9 in x 9 in.

Also, would anyone be interested in doing a craft challenge of 1 papercraft a week? (scrapbooking, card making, origami, etc.)

Have you tried kirigami (paper cutting)? I love kirigami and pairing it with origami for different decorations.

I've put up a few kirigami projects already, if you would like other suggestions, please message me *^_^*

You could do small stencil cut out and put them on a contrast background. They are fun and all you need is a pencil, a craft knife and a bit of glue Happy
