Creative Party Planning: Nautical Theme Party

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015


After the success of this past New Year’s Eve Masquerade Photobooth, good friends Evan and Rich asked me to help them decorate their Palmerston apartment once again for their annual nautical themed summer costume party. With so many nautical gems hidden throughout The Paper Place I couldn’t wait to bring them all together and help make their apartment a little bit more sea-worthy.


Blue triangle flag bunting ($5.95) was strung above the bar area, while our Italian Decorative Papers ($4 per 19.5 x 27″ sheet) were used to add detail to drink dispensers.


Wave motifs were cut from some of our Obonai Feather and Momi papers ($4-4.50 per 21 x 31″ sheet) and taped behind the couch to create a fun backdrop for guests sitting on the sandy coloured cushions.


Our Sailing Kite (Yes, it’s a kite!) acted both as a handy costume prop and decorative centrepiece ($34.95).


Using a glue stick I adhered one of our gold anchor dresden trims ($7.95 for a pack of 22) to a piece of Katazome-shi paper and washi taped it to the door so guests could easily find the party. This paper would later inspire a knot-tying contest between hosts on the apartment’s upper deck.


Polaroids hung on a string with our mini clothes pegs ($4.95 for a pack of 50) were backed by sheets of our tall ships gift wrap ($4 per 20 x 30″ sheet) in the hallway so party guests could relive memories of years prior.

Interested in hosting your own nautical party? Be sure to pay us a visit. There is a pirate’s bounty of treasure and inspiration to be found.




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.

Origami Flower Card

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Spring is here, and I thought I would fold some Origami flowers. I found a variety of origami flower inspiration in the book, “Origami Flowers” by Kazuo Kobayashi.

For this project I used the Morning Glory instructions found on page 23. It was a fairly simple flower to fold.


After I had folded a variety of Morning Glory flower sizes, I arranged and pasted them on a card, made of Nepalese paper.


This card was super fun and easy to make. I’m going to send it to my mom for Mother’s Day. :)
