Crumpled Paper Crafts began as a way to stay connected to the youth art group I worked with during the pandemic. I started making videos for the group, but after hearing that written instructions would be a helpful tool for learning to read, I started to write and illustrate the tutorials. This turned out to be really fun, so I decided I would put together some of my all-time favorite (and a handful of brand new to me) projects to do with people of all ages. I recently released a second version of Crumpled Paper Crafts as a 2023 calendar.
The art projects I love to share are usually open-ended, flexible, and fun to make, regardless of any particular final product. I love projects that allow you to learn a new process, but also leave lots of room to express yourself and pursue an idea or element of the artmaking process that interests you. I am also a huge fan of using upcycled materials in artwork and modifying projects to fit the supplies you have on hand.
