Folding Trees on Facebook

A Big Decision

When we started Folding Trees, back in June 2008, paper crafts were often neglected among today’s crafters. We saw the need to showcase that there’s so much more to paper crafting than just scrapbooking, and our goal was to collect the best tutorials we have found on the net, inspire you by highlighting amazing paper creations from talented artists and crafters, and share our own paper crafts and tutorials.

Since then, we have written close to 600 posts and found a loyal following of well over 5,000 readers per day. We’re so grateful to all of you who have returned to Folding Trees every day to see what new delights we’ve uncovered! We have also established the thriving Folding Trees Flickr group which is full of beautiful paper art and crafts made by our talented readers.

Here are a few of our most popular original tutorials:

folding trees - year 1
clockwise from top left:
1) June’s Tissue Paper Carnations;
2) Eve’s Kusudama Ball (part 1 & part 2);
3) June’s Lucky Wishing Stars; 4) Eve’s Balloon Lights

Now we feel that we’ve accomplished our initial mission to bring modern, stylish paper crafts to the world. The variety and relevance of making things from paper have been more widely recognized, and most of the other big craft blogs have picked up on this and are covering paper crafts too, with more time and resources than the two of us can afford. We have therefore made the difficult decision to step back from Folding Trees for a while, to allow us to spend more time with our families and to concentrate on our small businesses.

With Folding Trees, we have compiled a valuable resource as a source of inspiration and tutorials, and we hope you’ll continue to visit us: all our previous posts are archived by categories in the right sidebar if you’d like to browse for inspiration, or you can use the Search box (also in the right sidebar) if you’re looking for something specific. If you’re looking for new papercraft ideas in the future, try visiting blogs such as One Pretty Thing, CRAFT and WhipUp for daily posts on all types of craft including papercraft, and of course our Folding Trees Flickr group, which we hope you’ll continue to post pictures to, with links to your tutorials for the things you’ve made!

Thank you for all your support, and keep on crafting with paper!

June & Eve,

I only discovered Folding Trees during the last year. But the varied paper arts you introduced to me moved my primary focus from china & glass mosaic to paper. First my combining paper into my 3D mosaics & later concentrating solely on paper arts.

Yours was the feed I looked for every morning BEFORE checking my email. I’ll miss you; but, am certain I’ll continue to refer to your site for tutorials and inspiration.

Thank you and Happy New Year.

Thank you so much for all you’ve shared. I got on the bandwagon a little late in the game but have searched through your archived postings & found lots of wonderful ideas. My papercrafting world has certainly expanded with all I’ve learned through your site. Blessings to you both!

Oh I’m sorry to read your message, but am relieved FoldingTrees isn’t completely disappearing. You’ve done a fantastic job of featuring a wide variety of paper projects and I so appreciate all of the attention brought to quilling especially. You’ve been one of my main go-to sites for such a long while now, a daily visit will be a hard habit to break. Best wishes in your future endeavors, June and Eve!

Well, hell – it’s not like you haven’t provided so many projects already that I have a healthy backlog, but I’m sad to hear of this hiatus. I hope you’re both successful in your business, but I also hope you’re both back on this site sooner rather than later. Thank you for all the inspiration and tutuorials, and may you have a happy and prosperous new year!

Been a while i visited your blog, which i used to do like quite a few times everyday till couple of months ago & now that my heart feels heavy to know the news :(. You guys were so inspiring on paper crafts & did a damn good job on the same!! You inspired (‘mesmerized’ would be a better word i guess) me on quilling, made me look around to buy the tools, do some projects which i loved to & even got them posted on your blog. I’m a medical doc by profession & i had never even dreamt of paper craftin’ till i stumbled upon your blog. I was on a quite long vacation in a diff country then; i’m now back home with the entire quilling kit & back to work & sure to do some more quilling when i find time. “Kudos” to ya both “June & eve”. May this new year bring ya both everything ya wished for in your life!

I am so sad that you guys decided to stop Folding Trees. I discovered your blog a while back and I was surprised at all of the projects that can be made out of paper. I was also happy that you guys have put together all of the projects which make the whole website a “one stop for all.” This website have link me to others bloggers, which also help me get inspiration to do paper craft. I always and constantly look forward for your new posts. Now, as I read this final post, I want to say “Congrats” for your success from this website. I believe you have inspired many people to let out their creative side and let their imagination go wild. I wish you both with happiness, luck, and prosperity in your life.

sorry to hear you are not going to continue just found you and love your site. I have put some of the Kusadama ball and my own design of a Christmas tree on my blog. Yours was the best site to teach me to fold so far. Check out my tree if you get the chance

It’s a real shame you felt you couldn’t compete with larger sites. I found your blog from allthingspaper-annmartin.blogspot.com and love it. It’s not always about competing with the larger players, you’re small and perfectly formed :)

Have you ever thought about making a book out of this project? If you put all the ideas you have here, I will buy the book.
If not, I hope you will keep Folding Trees for years. Thank you so much for what you have done. Now I think twice before I recicle used gift paper or an old magazine.

I discovered your site a while back then fell into some struggles and did not have the internet for a while but I have been back now for a while and am looking again to get back into the paper artwork. I am so delighted to find you again. I too am starting a new blog to share what I learn so others can learn to do paper artwork as well.

What other sites are there, to have more paper crafts? I love to do art with paper, and origami would be great. :)
