The Sunday Paper #406

March 27, 2022

I’m hosting a free Zoom workshop this coming Thursday, March 31st. We’ll be making a Pop-Up Landscape Card. Click here to see what we’ll be making, find a supply list, and register for the workshop. The event will be recorded, but you must sign up to receive the recording.

At the free Zoom, I’ll also be talking about my Paper Year online membership program, which opens for registration April 1 – 10th. We are a community of paper lovers that explores a different technique each month. Above you see a variety of slice form constructions – the technique we explored in February – by Inisya Dhatt, Terry Englehart and Jane Vossler. Watch the video that shows every member’s slice form rendition.

Patrick Alberto Vraja has a way with paper! If you look closely at his owl sculptures, they contain many refined features, like talons, individual feathers, beaks, and eyes. He folds large sheets of tissue paper, which can be up to 5 feet in length and width.

I’m featuring one-sheet wonders here on the blog, since the projects in my new book, The Art of Papercraft, fall into that category. I’d love to feature your one-sheet wonders!

Steph Rue designed this gorgeous Bojagi Curtain for my new book by cutting and reconfiguring a 24″ x 36″ sheet of Korean hanji. Bojagi is a traditional Korean stitched textile. Artists have their ways of bending tradition, though, and Steph Rue’s use of small pieces of paper relies on the same principle as traditional bojagi. The instructions in The Art of Papercraft show you how to make a bojagi curtain, which looks so beautiful when hung in a window.

I just discovered the work of Jodi Levine, whose new e-book is Toilet Tube Treasury. You should see the crafts she features – my favorite is Tube Town! Toilet Tube Treasury is a 62-page crafty ebook with 24 crafts with 19 pages of free printable templates for kids and adults alike.

Hooray! I reached my March fundraising goal of $1,000 for the Ukraine! Thank you so much to those of you who purchased paper weavings and donated to my blog! There is one final week in March, so I have added a few more paper weavings to my website. All profit from the sale of these weavings, along with contributions to the blog in March (you can find a link for that at the bottom of this post) will be donated to Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights.

I love that I get to make art, you get to own art, and together we can help our brothers and sisters by raising some money together. Click here to purchase a weaving
