Art Tip: Cut Paper

Cut paper is a colorful way to make an eye catching piece of artwork. Use colorful construction paper, and consider mixing in some other types of paper, like wrapping paper or others. Be aware that newspaper will turn yellow as it ages, and magazine paper wrinkles when glued with wet glue (use a glue stick or other glue that isn’t wet feeling).
