This post contains affiliate links. Have you read the book, Beautiful Oops! by Barney Saltzberg? This is a book that we completely fell in love with. The creative process of art spills out over the pages as little (and big) "oops" messes, tears, and folds become art. While we do many crafts that are focused on an end product, process art is something we love in many creative projects! Beautiful Oops! is a process art guide book.
As we read the book, one of our favorite pages was the folded corner Oops that became a reason to celebrate with a cute penguin. We decided to make folded paper animals and couldn't stop creating!
Folded Paper Animal Crafts
We started with a big pile of assorted cardstock, a few pair of scissors and some glue. We started with a fold on the corner of the paper and let our imaginations go!
...and cut some more...
...and added details to our animal creatures.
We made a feeeew animals.
And then put our folded paper creatures to work holding pages in books!
We had a blast with this book and can't stop making our oops' beautiful!
