Better Homes & Gardens' Christmas Ideas, part 2

Paper's not just for writing and sculpture isn't just for museums. This is the gist of one of the most groundbreaking articles ever published in Better Homes & Gardens. 'Sculpture with paper' explored the underground world of people who admit that they wish they were 'endowed with the patience and skill to execute [the pictured] paper sculpture designs by Mildred Bryant Brooks.' The details of the article are shocking and scintillating.

The paper angel with 'tiny rice lights' seems like a lot of work for very little payoff.

I'm not sure if this article is asking if you have cut paper or if you are capable of cutting paper. Either way, cut paper makes some pretty fab decorations!

'These baubles have something in common' - I thought it was more to do with esthetics than foil paper!

I like the one in the middle that looks like it's made of dyed farfalle or glued apron scraps!
