Gathering Papercraft supplies to get started in this art form is inexpensive and easy . . . those two things in the creative arts are unheard of!
Most people have the basic supplies in their homes already, so you may have them even if you are new to crafting.
If you are already a crafter, then just look around and you'll most likely find all that is needed to get started.
What you will need for the basics of getting started:
I have found that I am able to complete any Papercrft project without using any of the tools below. With that said, I also would not be without them!
If you are missing any of these recommended Papercraft supplies, it's okay. In fact, when I began creating art with paper, the only tool I had from this list was a hole punch (and paper, of course).
Sometimes I even kinda miss those days.
I found that once I started making a variety of paper art, most everything from my craft room was up for grabs when the decorating began.
WARNING! This art form lends itself to collecting all sorts of things to clutter up your craft room.
I have found that old textbooks (that cannot be used or resold) are perfect for black and white print.
If you have a supply of National Geographic Magazines (that nobody is reading, or ever will read again), the articles often have like-colors that make beautiful paper beads and paper flowers.
Begin looking at all of your magazines before recycling them out. Be sure and notice Christmas sales magazines and flyers for gathering paper for Christmas Papercrafts.
