Feature Friday- Cut Paper Art
Cut-out tree with magazine strip background
Both an art and a very effective fine Motor Skill activity: tightly rolling magazine pages and gluing the edges will create beautiful tubes that can be used in craft projects. Children can gain the benefits from creating them, and then again from using them as stacking sticks, art supplies, counters, and more!
Lisa Kretchman. Seasons, 2010. Multimedia piece made from recycled junk mail, plant spikes, gloss medium, and thread. The blog entry shows the creation process: the junk mail was cut into strips and rolled into little tubes (like beads). Each stick got seven beads, and then those were woven together into the panel. Her colorway is really well done.
Coiled Magazine Page Round Coasters
Rolled paper wall art. Such an interesting piece! you can make with your kids. I’m constantly amazed by artists who re-use common materials to create beautiful works of art. We are having a long holiday week ahead with public holidays next Tuesday to Thursday for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri (Eid ul-Fitr) and National Day celebrations.
