10 Artists, 1 Paper
We invited 10 different artists, some who traditionally work with paper and some who don’t, to create a piece all using the same Chiyogami pattern as their inspiration.
Our goal was to showcase the endless possibilities of our gorgeous Japanese papers and the results did not disappoint!
We will be releasing images of the work one by one throughout the month of October so stay tuned!

Charley Harper - Clair de Loon

Charley Harper – Clair de Loon

Did you know that Ontario’s national bird is the Common Loon? These stealthy fish fetchers are responsible for those erringly beautiful calls over lakes and ponds on grey misty mornings. If loons aren’t your thing, fear not! Here at The Paper Place, we have loads of fine-feathered friends for even the most discerning ornithologist.



Check out all these tweet finds!


No collection is complete with out crane origami, of course.

We have some really interesting papers in the shop right now and a few of them really stand out. Especially when illuminated.

Colourful crafts for you and your children

Monday, May 4th, 2015

With the onset of such beautiful sunny weather outside I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards more colourful crafts. I couldn’t wait to try out these brand new 3D paper models from Sky Goodies when they arrived in store. Bright and cheerful, they’re perfect activity for kids and hobbyists alike.


The “Make Happy” collection is sold flat with perforated punch out templates so no scissors are required. We have four styles currently in store and they retail in price between $3.95 and $5.95.


The only additional material you need is glue and a small paintbrush to apply it on the indicated tabs. We used Aleena’s Tacky Glue ($4.95) and found it gave the best results as it dries clear and quickly.


Originating from India, Sky Goodies’ products feature beautiful ornate patterns reminiscent of hand painted trucks, a vanishing art form that the designers behind the Make Happy collection wanted to pay tribute to.


Try one today and add a little colour to your day!
