With all of the decorative craft papers, wrapping paper, newspapers, and book pages, there are plenty of paper designs available for crafts. Just focusing on the more rustic papers, I came up with a collection of crafts to do with paper. It’s easy to transform a variety of items using just paper.
Crafts To Do With A Variety Of Papers
Wrapping Paper Crafts
Out of all the crafts to do with paper, wrapping paper is one of my favorites. Because wrapping paper comes in wide rolls, you can use it in some bigger projects. You can even line the back of bookshelves with wrapping paper! Whatever you want to makeover and give a fun pattern to, can probably be done with wrapping paper. So, the next time you are buying a roll of wrapping paper, you may want to think about what you can do with the leftover paper! Wrap a gift in a paper that you like and use it for a craft project. A total win win!
Book Page Crafts

Book pages are another great paper to use in rustic craft projects. Because you can use the whole book, it’s easy to form shapes like this pumpkin. However, you can also make or decorate other things with just a single page. Check out all of the creative ideas at my post Lots And Lots Of Book Page Crafts.
