Patricia Zapata: use paper scraps to make wall art

Published October 22, 2012 by Origami Architecture


Something that every paper crafter has after a completed project is a pile of scraps. I’m no different and let me tell you my pile of scraps can get quite out of hand! To put it to good use, this solution is really simple, uses up a lot of scraps and can be made leisurely over a long period of time.

I don’t remember exactly how the idea for this piece came about but I can tell you that I made it many months ago and as I walked by it the other day it occurred to me that it was high time that I share it with you. I have the step-by-step photos of the process because it was going to be part of a book that never came to fruition (I would’ve loved a close up of this project for the cover).

Since we’ve had it on our wall for weeks and weeks I can also tell you that it holds up really well and yes I did actually use my scraps—no new sheets of paper were harmed for this project. 😉
