3D Paper Sculpture with Cardstock

3D paper Sculptures Made With Scrapbook Paper

What Cutting Machine To Use?

For electronic cutting machines I recommend Cricut for cutting these cute designs. Paper sculptures made with a Cricut machine make stunning gifts, door prizes and centerpieces. In order to access the best patterns I use a Cricut Premium Access Membership. A premium access membership gives fonts and craft patterns. (Not to mention access to a community of makers doing innovative things to create awesome gifts and more). The Cricut machines have interchangeable blades for different purposes. I have cut both paper and fabric, engraved metal and scored paper to make a variety of gifts. Cricut is perfect for the hobbyist and has regular software updates, great customer service and a fantastic community to lean on in when the need arises for inspiration or help. I feature some of my past creations on my ‘Cards & Customs‘ page.

Why I Use Dreaming Tree

The correct paper is vital to success in these projects.

Why 3D Paper Sculpture with scrapbook paper like cardstock? Because the thickness and weight of the paper is crucial. Cheap, flimsy papers will not work. I use cardstock with my Cricut and Dreaming Tree files. It cuts easily, stands up to rigorous treatment. Because of this, the finished projects hold their form well. (Even when treated with inks, watercolor paints, blending brushes and embellishments). The paper is acid free and, as a result, will bring years of enjoyment to the recipient. The colors and designs of the papers are original.
