Upcycled Crafts: How to Make a Paper Kiwi

May 24, 2013 at 10:30 am Leave a comment

Happy Friday!

Today’s upcycled craft is along the same theme as last week’s paper apple, only it’s a half of a kiwi. We wanted to post another fruit related craft just to help jumpstart your creativity when it comes to crafting. The possibilities are endless!

Damaged hardcover book

Scissors, boxcutter, or Xacto knife


Hot glue

Step 1:


Begin bycutting the shape of half of the kiwi half. Continue to cut each page in this shape.

Step 2:

After you have cut each page, you can fill in the top edge with a green marker. Before coloring in the bottom edge, fuzz up the pages on this edge to make it look more like a kiwi’s skin. Next, you can color it with a brown marker.

Step 3:

Take the first and the last page and hot glue them together. Then, take a black marker and draw some seeds on the green edges. That’s all there is to it!
