The Canon company provides ways for consumers to produce quality photographs using their printing and digital camera products. Canon also has a website dedicated to creating quality 3D paper crafts using blank photo paper and a your home printer. The 3D paper crafts listed on the Canon Creative Park website have instruction manuals you can download or print as well as a list of items needed before creating the project. Projects should be printed on high print quality photo paper and printed in portrait form.
Canon offers several images dedicated to wall art. Canon helps turn that wall art into 3D masterpieces using printed images on photo paper combined with mosaic and découpage techniques. Each project is different and requires different techniques and amounts of photo paper for different desired effects. Pop-up wall calendars are also available to print out and create at the Canon website and will create a decorative, but useful piece of wall art in the family room or office.
Centrepieces are not only eye-catching, but can serve as a conversation starter for guests or others who may not know each other at the dinner table. This isn't listed as an intended use for the projects on the Canon website, but will work just as well. Create a spring themed centrepiece by printing the 3D rabbit and flower patterns and instructions. Create a rehearsal or reception dinner centrepiece for a wedding using the two different patterns available to create a 3D bride and groom paper doll. Cut and assemble the photo paper images and place in the centre of the table for a unique table topper.
Create toy 3D paper crafts to keep children entertained during the making of the craft project and after it is finished. Print the templates for 3D paper dolls and clothing to place on each doll for a girl. For a boy create a city by printing several images of different buildings and place them on a play table to drive toy cars through, or use the 3D car templates to create cars, too. 3D paper windmills, spinning tops and pinwheels can be create using photo paper and a printer, but will require a few more material to complete the project.
Sometimes it is easier to learn new things or remember things when you learn as you are creating a craft project. Canon offers several ways for children to create a 3D paper project and learn at the same time. Children can learn to tell time the ancient way by making a sundial, follow the phases of the moon by creating a lunar globe or build a 3D paper rocket. Children can also use the 3D animal and insect patterns to create images for a diorama project at school. Some of the patterns and instructions for these paper crafts may be hard to understand for younger children, so adult supervision may be necessary.
