Origami Architecture Template


Here is a simple but impressive paper structure for you to try 😉

You will need: a piece of A4 paper, a cutting board, a craft knife, a steel rule.

Lightly score grey dots for uniform folds. (Do not cut right through)

Cut right through parallel grey lines.

Cut out frame & discard waste.

Cut right through grey centre lines so that frame is in two halves.

Carefully fold grey dots.

Push frame pieces inside each other to make elevated rays stand upwards. Fix with glue or tape. Then Display!

Resize (if necessary), using paint or other editing tool. Print it off on any type of paper, plain or coloured looks great or get a more solid look using glossy photo paper, but it is a little trickier to cut and fold. The cutting lines are on the back of this structure once finished so, don’t worry about them showing.

Mona Lisa Haunted Papercraft

Haunted Papercraft

Just a piece of plain paper? Look again!

By using countless folds and creases to suggest highlights and shadow I have forged an image of the worlds most famous female portrait, ‘The Mona Lisa’ into a plain piece of A4 paper. Hard to make out at first, I agree.  It’s my very 1st attempt at this style of decorative papercraft work, which I call ‘Haunted Papercraft’ as the image is faint and ghostlike.

Optical illusion using real wood veneers

Marquetry Art


Not paper this time, but some left over pieces of wooden veneer from a restoration project. This use of natural wood veneers creates a few leafy stems, a flower  and a Butterfly giving the illusion of a woman’s face.
