Cartoon with Stickles

Need a last minute finishing touch on your paper crown for the holiday party?  Forget that cheesy glitter glue from the dollar store.  Scoot on down to The Paper Place and pick up some STICKLES – densely packed micro sparkles floating in a crystal clear miracle goo brought to you in cute little bottles.

Complete that project languishing in the corner with a simple squeeeeze – the precision control nozzle allows you to put tiny dots or undulating lines of fabulous luminous DAZZLE on any paper surface!!

We carry a wide range of colours and metallics guaranteed to enhance – well – just about anything in reach??

YOU HAVEN’T EMBELLISHED UNTIL YOU’VE STICKLED!!

 Steps to creating a basic place card:

  • - Take your #10 flat card and cut it in half using your craft knife and metal cork back ruler.
  • - Take each half of the #10 card and score them in half using your bone folder and ruler.
  • - Now fold the card along the score line to create a tent card.
  • - You now have two place cards to apply labels to with your guest’s name.
  • - You can now decorate your place cards whether you use stamps, paper or embellishments!

A neat idea we received from a customer, is using our Animal Paper Clips to determine the food your guest will be receiving. Below is an example of this fun idea, showing the difference between; Meat-Cow paper clip, Seafood-Whale paper clip, and Vegetarian-Bunny paper clip.
