3D DIY Papercrafting



Hello, G45ers!

  Happy Friday crafty friends.  For today’s Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador Farewell Edition, we are honoring genius paper crafting engineer, Jim Hankins – The Gentleman Crafter.  We are thrilled to share a few of Jim’s amazing 3D DIY Home Decor pieces, starting with a summer fun Tiki Hut with Coaster Set, a Bird Song Pagoda, and then finally his #G45Selfie projects, a Pendulum Clock.  We hope these projects inspire you to think outside the box and try an off the page project, and when you do be sure to share it with us on our Graphic 45 Official Community Page on Facebook.

 Bird Song Pagoda

The Gentleman Crafter


“One of my favorite collections is back! I went back to my roots here and made another pagoda with this collection.  The original pagoda was my mother’s favorite project and if Mama Nell liked it…I hope you all would too. This time around it’s functional.   Slide back the shoji doors to find a segmented container. Open the box and there are a set of flip-flop memory books perfectly sized for those tiny printers that work off your phone and make fun little photos.” ~Jim
