We have just received new products from our friends at Bookhou Design. Bookhou is a local, Toronto based company that specializes in making beautiful and unique things from natural and handmade materials. Their products are all handmade, and have always been a favourite at our store. Here’s a look at some new things we just got in!
This dress, which was designed and hand crafted by our fabulous staff, is made with “Kozuke White”. A 70% Kozo (Mulberry Fibre) machine made Japanese paper. Kozuke is a good quality, versatile and economical sheet. Perfect for a variety of uses including light painting with watercolour or acrylic, drawing with soft pencil, printmaking…and clearly, dressmaking!
Isn’t she pretty?
She will be up in the store for a while so drop in and have a closer look!
Get inspired to do-it-yourself! Diana, a customer of The Paper Place, did it herself. She designed and constructed her own wedding invitations.
Diana designed this sweet invitation and printed it herself using Print Gocco, even the envelope. She used our cardstock in “Cement” and A7 envelope in “Strawberry.” It looks fantastic and is completely custom!
If you are interested in making your own custom invitations perhaps you should sign up for our “Invitations 101″ workshop…call us soon as it is filling up FAST!
