From Cosmic Origami Artwork to Delicate Paper Party Decor

 - Mar 10, 2013
A lot of times, decorative paper products are very environmentally friendly, often made using recycled newspapers, magazines and discarded materials that are repurposed and given new life.

With digital media fast on the rise, paper is becoming a more artistic medium, serving aesthetic rather than functional purposes. Because of it's thin nature, the material is often used to create elaborate artworks and voluminous designs that are light and have a dainty appearance, swaying in the breeze and responding to touch. Some artists defy this quality and use stacks of paper to create sturdy sculptures that they carve into.

Many decorative paper products are possible for anyone to make right in their homes, with plenty of DIY project tutorials and templates available that only require some glue, scissors and a bit of creativity.
