Hello Birdie!

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

Here’s a great idea for making a mobile for a baby’s room … study … or … anywhere. Using Chiyogami paper we folded these birds from the Robin pattern in Florence Sakade’s book ORIGAMI – JAPANESE PAPER FOLDING.

Using waxed linen thread we strung the birds together.

Not wanting to perform a “balancing act” we simply hung the winged ones from a KIKKERLAND PHOTO MOBLIE.

Finding the perfect wedding card!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

I don’t know about you guys, but I will be attending more than a few weddings this summer. And if your mom is anything like mine, she taught you never to show up at a wedding without a card for the bride and groom.

My problem with wedding cards is that they can get a little frumpy for my taste. Lots of flowers and long winded, sappy messages… that is just not my style. Lucky for me, and those of you searching for a more contemporary take on a wedding card, The Paper Place has got us covered! We carry a wide range of fun and funny wedding cards with blank interiors, so you can write your own message from the heart.

And when in doubt, there are always the beautiful foil stamped cards from Rifle Paper co. Aren’t they gorgeous??? (Rifle Paper co. $6.95, $5.95 & $6.95).

Come on in to see the full selection of our wedding cards, and happy wedding season everyone!
