Paper of the Week: How to Make a Paper Slinky!
I love all sorts of paper techniques, from surface design to cutting, folding and the myriad forms of manipulation. Here’s an old technique that I’m calling a Paper Slinky. I think I first saw it in Pauline Johnson’s book Creating with Paper. Two variations are also included in my own book Playing with Paper. How have you used this technique?
I mention a few resources in the video tutorial:
- Here’s the paper slinky template
- You might be interested in more projects in my book Playing with Paper.
- Japanese linen paper from Washi Arts
- Double sided Thai unryu from GPC Papers
If you create a paper slinky, send me a photo! And feel free to share this blog post with your paper-loving friends (there’s a share button at the bottom of the page).
