Over Two Dozen Ideas for Paper Crafts
I love making paper crafts, especially for parties like DIY invitations, decorations, and favors or for gift giving like homemade gift tags and gift wrapping embellishments. I put this list together of fun paper craft tutorials I have done in the past and came up with over two dozen!
