Scissorcraft is a collection of images personally illustrated by your's truely with my two grand children in mind. Scissorcraft color book crafts are suitable for people of all ages and abilities, young and old. I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.
A while back I realized that I was spinning wheels and running like a hamster to appease the unappeasible demands of advertisers and had almost forgotten the reason behind creating these sites. Scissorcraft is my tiny space invirtual-land where I play to satiate an insatiable desire to illustrate for no apparent reason.
For a miniscule cost of $1 per month, members have access to the sum total of my life's work.
To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me jump off the hamster wheel to begin to regain creative insanity.
Bonus: to my knowledge none of my images have ever spontaneously exploded and are not banned on airplanes.

These 3-D fanfold ornaments came to mind one day while I experimented with different ways to make folding snowflake patterns similar to paper doll chain crafts. For best results, print ornament sets on regular paper, landscape setting to ensure the largest coloring surface possible for most patterns. Use colored markers, colored pencils or crayons to decorate the images. To hang, use an ornament hanger, a paperclip, yarn or string. Punch the hole with a standard classroom grade hole punch to make the opening in which to insert the ornament hanger or string or yarn.
For fanfold designs, color the entire design first with multiple or solid colors before folding. Cut out the design along solid lines then fold the paper along the dotted lines. Attach the ends together with staples, tape or glue. Thread string, yarn or ornament hanger through the hole. If you are happy with the results, coat the ornament (outside) with spray fixative to preserve.
