Wood-Grain Wrapping Paper

Steps:3
Beautifully grained woods are nature's masterpieces, but, as style editor Tom Tamborello demonstrates, it is possible to re-create their sinuous patterns and harmonious colors on paper, using a wood-graining tool and latex paint. The decorated paper is perfect for wrapping gifts, and because you control the "grain" and color of every piece you create, each sheet of wrapping paper is unique. 
Materials
  • Glossy, nonporous paper
  • Low-tack tape
  • Latex paint
  • Glazing medium, for latex paint
  • Mixing bowl or bucket, for latex paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Wood-graining tools

Quilling Valentines: Tools and Making Shapes

Steps:10
Quilling paper comes in a variety of colors and widths; most of our projects can be made with standard precut strips. If you prefer, use a paper cutter and medium-weight paper, such as vellum or stationery, to make your own; construction paper is too heavy and will not roll easily.
Materials
  • A round-headed pin is useful for precise glue application.
  • A slotted quilling tool lets you create coiled shapes with ease.
  • Fine-pointed tweezers are essential for tiny shapes.
  • Use small sharp scissors to cut fringe.
