Explore all the ways you can reshape paper—ripping, crumpling, texturing, fringe cutting, triangle cutting, accordion folding—and practice combining those techniques in creative new ways. Use your powers of imagination to BE VISIONARY and invent a one-of-a-kind creature, then bring every papery piece of it to crinkly, colored, folded, fantastical life.
