For this DIY-Project I got inspired by paperflap. The company enables you to create your own contemporary style. Their products are DIY paper animals and sculptures that have to be assembled by yourself. I love the geometrical design of their paperobjects, especially the wall sculptures. This brought me to the idea to make my own 3D paintings with the help of straws. In my easy 4 step DIY approach, I show you how to get the best results.
