What’s not to love about paper?

Pages of them can contain all sorts of words and, bound together,

create a book that can transform your world. Or you.

You can take a sheet of paper and draw on it.


You can fold paper and make something useful or just fun.


You can recycle paper.

If you take the teabag you just used for that cup of tea,

you can throw out the tea then wash and dry the bag.

Then you can make something pretty with it.


There are paper artists and paper architects who do beautiful things with paper like this one by Debbie of Perfect Papercuts

Jeremiah Papercut 2013

but you can always try something fast and simple too.


Like a simple pop-up. Or a paper doll. Or a book marker.


Paper can be folded, cut, scored, sewn, crumpled, pasted.

Bits and pieces can be thrown into a blender with water and starch to make new paper!

You can create a whole new world of your own with paper (and lots of imagination!).

  1. I love paper and its infinite possibilities too. As much as I love trees, I hope paper never goes away. Well, except for all the paper wasted on newspapers, magazines, and anything not meant to be kept permanently. By the way, I’m so glad you’re on WordPress. This is a lot easier to comment than on Blogpost!


    1. Totally agree on both the wasted paper and being on WordPress! If I ever get around to it, I may import the Blogger blog into a WordPress one =) Did you see my comment on your post? I just love your boys. Mine are all grown up =(


      1. Yes, I did and I replied.

        I hope you can transfer your old posts here. It would be nice to have them all in one place. You chose a nice, clean theme for your blog. I love the textured paper for the background image. Beautiful.


  2. Just gorgeous, I love all your cut outs…especially the ballerina style skirt. It reminds me of those Spanish postcards with the dancers and the real net skirts. Nice blog…I’m here via a Blog Hop Skip and a Jump {*}
