Turn Paper into Money -
Have you ever seen intricately cut paper turned into art? While I was researching how to create Book Art, I came across
Paper Art and I was stunned. It's absolutely beautiful! There is an ancient art of paper cutting, but not many of us have time for that. I have another way to transform one sheet of paper into stunning art that you can sell, give as gifts or display in your home with ease.
Turn a Single Sheet of Paper into $40
I sell my paper art for $40 or more. It's a single sheet of paper that I've turned into extra money. How cool is that? Anyone can do this. You don't need to have any artistic skills.
Do I have retail space? No, but I do in a way. I make the Paper Art and talk to local
businesses about selling them in their stores. This is called consignment. I just ask them if they are accepting items for consignment. What this means is that my Paper Art can go into local stores, for the public to purchase and I get paid when my Paper Art sells. The store will usually want you to fill out some type of form with your information on it and an agreement between you and the store discussing how much they will expect out of the sale.
The other way that I sell them is through Facebook Local Swap Sites. I belong to many yard sale, garage sale type swap sites on Facebook and they do something called "Porch Pick-Up or PPU." This means that all I have to do is place my item for sale in a tote on my porch and the purchaser will come by on the day she says she will and purchase the item by placing the money in an envelope. I personally have never been scammed out of money.
How to Create Paper Art
I create my Paper Art using the Cricut Machine. I figured out how to use any image that you can think of. I even made
a layered cut of my daughter! Images can be personalized to include a name, date or whatever you'd like. People love buying these because of the personalization. Templates can be made for future use and then personalized when needed.
I use a free program called Inkscape to do all of my editings to the images. If you need to know exactly how I edit in Inkscape, I will be offering a course with detailed explanations.
