One of my favorite trends as of late is feathers. They seem to be everywhere….real feathers that have been painted and dyed, felt and fabric feathers, and yes even paper feathers. Feathers are light and feminine and are a fun way to add a touch of the nature trend to your DIY paper crafting projects. Add them as an embellishment to a card or package or create larger ones for home décor projects.
Unsure of how to incorporate feathers into your projects? No problem, today I am sharing 10 different ideas on how to create and incorporate paper feathers into your next DIY paper crafting project. Grab some paper and your scissors and let’s get started. And remember, no birds were harmed in the creating of these projects!

How have you decorated with feathers?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
