I saw a picture in a Facebook papercraft group. That woman made a card featuring 2 feathers. I think that it is good for making greeting cards, scrapbooking and making paper Indian headbands. The original version is 2 pieces of white “feathers” but I tried variations of using ink to make them colorful. The ingredients are very simple and will be available in one’s home. The feather can be ready in no time.
White paper & pencil
A pair of scissors
Ink for coloring the feathers
Step by step instructions:
1) Draw an outline of a feather on a piece of paper or you can download from the internet. There should be many templates that you can use. I drew mine and intentionally made it imperfect. On one side of the feather, draw some parallel lines from the bottom to the top of the feather, the more the detailed the feather will be.
2) Fold in half in the middle and use a pair of scissors to cut both side at one time.
3) Open the feather after finishing cutting and a feather is finished.
4) If you want a color feather, use the color ink to add color on the feather. I have tried multiple colors in one feather and color on the top part of the feather.
