Little Swedish Tomte helping to spread the joy.

Have you just finished a great paper mache mask or sculpture? Use the form below to share it with your fellow artists. We’d love to see it!

Show Us Your Latest Project ...

Hint: Use a title that will make it easy for people to find your post.
Click or drag a file to this area to upload.
This image will appear at the top of your post. jpg and jpeg files are allowed.
Some information you might want to include: Is there a story that goes with the artwork? We love stories! Why did you make it? What inspired you? Did you use a pattern or tutorial from this site? (If so, which one?)
Click or drag files to this area to upload. You can upload up to 2 files.
Add one or two more photos. jpg and jpeg files are allowed.

A few tips for a great post:

  • Add a good title. And …
  • If you can, change your image file name from “IMG_4392” to real words that say what the image is about. The post title and image name help our readers find your post when they use the search bar.
  • If you had any challenges while you were making your mask or sculpture, please let us know what they were – and how you managed to overcome them. That will encourage other readers to try making something of their own.
  • After your post is approved, be sure to share it with your friends. In fact, go ahead and brag a little, because your work will be featured on one of the largest and most popular paper mache websites on the Internet. 🙂

Important: Any image you post must belong to you. No exceptions! If someone other than you is shown in your photos, be sure to get their permission (and their parent’s permission, if they’re kids) before you share the photo with the world.

Note: All submissions are moderated to stop spam and to make sure the post is family-friendly, so it may take a few hours for your post to go “live.” Please be patient.

This is a brand new feature. If you run into any problems with it, please let me know in the comment section below.

Now — scroll back up and fill out that form. We really want to see what you made!

  1. Hi Jonni – Love, Love your videos.

    Thank you so much for the creation of the frog head. I have made a jumbo size of the head.

    Would you happen to have a pattern to create a frog body? Please email me so we can discuss terms.

      • Yes. I will email you a picture of my frog head. Another question, you have a YouTube video that shows how to creat 3D art from scratch, such as what programs to use.

        Can you please share?

        • I can’t make a video showing my current process for creating the sculpting patterns, because it’s too haphazard and takes too long. I basically start with a clay sculpture, and then make paper mache copies of it. I cut the copies to make pieces that will, hopefully, create the right shapes. I keep doing it over and over again until all the pieces fit and the shapes are right. About six years ago I used Blender to create the frog, the elephant head, the jackrabbit and the bear. It took just as long as my current process, and it wasn’t as much fun for me, so I stopped using a computer program and now start with a real sculpture instead. If you want to try Blender, there are a lot of YouTube videos that show how to use it.

  2. Hi Jonni,
    Thought I’d finally share some of my latest pieces to show you my appreciation for being such a great paper mache advocate and share your wonderful creations online.
    I’m a big fan!

  3. Hi Jonni,
    decided to put on my “big girl pants” and try to share a photo of my first sculpture attempt via my iphone. I couldn’t get the image to load just so you know. Of course, I’m not the most savvy tech user. I’ll see if my hubby can help when he gets home.
