MC Paper Party Kit Img test - full size

It's a print party! We'll give you a moment to let your eyes adjust to the color explosion. Ok, you good? Great. Now, what can you make using colored paper, you ask? Quite a few things, actually. Read on for step-by-step instructions to create a festive garland, unique greeting card, fortune-telling game, and a crown fit for royalty.

Let's get started! 

Tools Needed:

  1. Print party paper
  2. Scissors
  3. Tape (washi, scotch, whatever you have)
  4. Glue stick
  5. Ruler
  6. Pencil

Project #1: Chain Crazy

Make a paper chain to hang on your bed, windows, tree, neck...you get the idea.

Step 1:

Using scissors, carefully cut out strips of paper from two or more sheets of paper.

Step 2:

Loop one of the strips and tape closed.

Step 3:

Take another strip of paper and loop it around the first, taping it closed and making a paper chain link.

Step 4:

Repeat Step 3 until the garland is as long as your heart desires.

Project #2: Cut Up Card

Wish your friends well and say thank you for that great gift you got with a handmade card.

Step 1:

Using scissors, cut your favorite pattern sheet in half.

Step 2:

Cut one side into 12 2x2-inch squares.

Step 3:

With a glue stick, arrange and apply the squares to the other half of paper.

Step 4:

Fold in half and your card is complete!

Project #3: Folded Fortune

Can you predict the future? Of course you can...with this magic little guy.

Step 1:

Cut a sheet into a square. Flip over, and using your ruler and pencil, trace two lines to connect the corners. Make two triangle folds along the lines.

Step 2:

Fold all four corners of the square so the points just touch the middle.

Step 3:

Flip your paper over so the folds you made are turned down. Fold the corners to the center again.

Step 4:

Fold it sideways, then unfold. Do the same for the other direction. Put fingers in the open 4 corners and shape into a fortune teller!

Project #4: Party Crown

Throwing a party? Going to a party? Just in a party kind of mood? Wear a crown, my friend!

Step 1:

Cut along the zig zag.

Step 2:

Cut along the green line.

Step 3:

Measure the crown shape's length around your head and tape the two ends together.

Step 4:

Go party!
