But I still like holding a paper in my hands once in a while, even if I cannot find one I trust anymore. I figured if I cannot find a paper worth reading, maybe I could find some fun crafts to do with the ones that sometimes get delivered to my door. After doing a search on Pinterest, I found these awesome ideas. I hope you find one you like. Enjoy these fun and crafty uses for newspaper and be sure to click through to the creators’ sites to see how they made these newspaper crafts.
