Paper Folding Birds Crafts
In the spring and summer, Marty and I enjoy watching the birds at our bird feeders. My favorites are the brightly colored songbirds like the goldfinches and the cardinals.
My husband loves watching the nuthatches as they walk down the tree headfirst. Spring and summer seem to be gone much too quickly in Vermont.
Before I know it, I see the green leaves turn to red and gold and many of the spring birds fly south for the winter.
So, I’ve tried paper folding bird crafts in the past, but the origami patterns were really too complicated for me. My final result looked nothing like a bird and since the origami paper was all one color, it just didn’t look bird like at all.
I received a beautiful paper folding bird crafts kit for review called (affiliate) “Beautiful Paper Birds” by Johan Scherft. Inside Beautiful Paper Birds is everything that you need to create 16 beautiful bluebirds, lovely goldfinches and delicate nuthatches.
So, there are 36 pre-printed project sheets and one bottle of glue as well as an instruction book that has detailed directions for cutting, gluing and folding the birds.
First, you will need these materials:
- Beautiful Paper Birds” by Johan Scherft
- 1 small branch
- 1 quart Mason jar
- 2 or 3 cups of small stones
- glue or wire to attach the birds to the branch
Displaying your birds can be done in a variety of ways. I chose to place mine on a branch. But, you can create the bird. Then, display it on a grapevine wreath if you prefer.
- Make 1 or 2 birds with the paper folding bird crafts kit
- Fill the mason jar 3/4 full with small stones
- Put the branch in the center of the jar
- Attach the birds to the branch with glue or wire
I enjoy using pieces of nature in my crafts. It gives my crafts a more natural and realistic look and these things are easy to find. This paper folding bird crafts kit would work wonderfully in a variety of crafts.
The birds could be placed near a wooden bird house or even in a small bird cage or on a grapevine wreath.
So, the kit was a great way to create the birds. The directions were easy to follow and it showed each step. It just took patience to allow each thing to dry before you moved on to the next.
You can buy this on Amazon.
