Paper Crafts, Pumpkins and Candy Corn

“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.” ~ Edgar Degas

 

Emily’s Bites of Fun:

THE HISTORY OF PAPER AND PAPER CRAFTS

By the end of seventeenth century German and Swiss Scherenschnitte, which literally translates as “scissor cuts” in German, had become the popular folk art in these countries.  At that time they were using white or black paper for crafting according to the needs of the projects.  Scherenschnitte continues today and is considered one of the finest paper crafts in the world.

Today, paper crafting provides a simple, enjoyable hobby that can help bring charm in to your life. It can take your attention away from difficulties for a short time, give you a sense of productivity and achievement and is an excellent way to stimulate creativity. Recycling materials as craft products is not only environmental friendly but also a good idea to save money too by using materials that are available and converting them into attractive items such as gifts for friends or family members.

A Note From Emily: 

I have been doing a lot of cards and getting  more and more ideas for Harvest, Halloween & Autumn. Check out my website and my Facebook page for even more inspiration and instructions.  Here is my new pumpkin card that I added a recipe for pumpkin cookies to.

There are so many things to choose from and experiment with, my mind explodes!  Add a recipe,  poem,  favorite family tradition for others to start, etc.

 

Get crafting this Autumn and let me know what you come up with.  And, take a class!
