Spotlight on… Art Deco Paper


Build skyscrapers, cathedrals and city centers with R15308 Art Deco Paper

This paper craft has 8 fantastic patterns and colors fashioned in the art deco style. Art deco was a visual art style that emerged in the early 20th century and spanned across everything from art and architecture to fashion and interior design. Famous examples of this style used in architecture can be found in places such as New York City where the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building display prominent art deco lines and curves.

You can build your own art deco city with this paper pack. Fold the paper in half twice lengthwise. When you unfold the paper, you will see 4 fold lines. These fold lines can be turned into corners for each building. Tape up the paper edges to secure the paper into a cylinder. Alternatively, you can cut the shapes in half to shorten or lengthen the size of each building.

Combine the buildings with other elements such as our R49701 Highway Letters and R75304 Super Topplers to make the streets and people in your city! Explore lessons in community building and infrastructure. Talk about the history behind art deco architecture and the choices made to stylize buildings in certain ways.

You don’t just have to use the Art Deco Paper for building paper cities. In addition, the paper can be used to decorate journals, gift boxes or greeting cards! Cut the paper into shapes and paste onto the items to decorate.
