How To Make Paper Feathers

This post is brought to you by Martha Bonneau from Mugsyboo.

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!
