Paper Weaving with Flair

Paper Weaving with Flair

Paper weaving is a tried and true art technique for any age. As children, we learned this simple art form by weaving together many straight strips of paper, in and out, under and over. But what if you didn't use uniformly cut strips of paper?

In our example, we used the Free Form Cutting Tool to cut wavy lines into a stack of patterned scrapbook paper.

  • We cut all of the pieces of paper at the same time.
  • When they were woven together, they looked like a puzzle.
  • Uniform strips of patterned paper were used to start the weaving project.
  • Then, the wavy cut pieces were woven into the strips to create an interesting and unique pattern.
