Holiday Bunting

Monday, December 9th, 2013

Now that it’s December holiday decorations are going up everywhere.  I wanted to make something easy for my  apartment to make it a little bit more festive.  I love bunting.  It’s simple, classic and easy to store once the holiday’s are over.


I used our solid coloured Nepalese paper for the flags in Green and Red.  They have great bright, vibrant colours that really make the lettering pop.  I cut triangles with a little extra flap at the top to fold over and glue onto the Divine Twine in Cherry.  I taped them to the wall using Washi Tape.

I used the Petite Damask and Petite Fleur (pictured above) as well as the Cameo and Droplet Patterned Nepalese papers for the letters.  I love the petite prints on the brightly coloured papers.  I used different printed papers in the same tabac and white colour so it wasn’t too overwhelming to look at from afar.  I really wanted the red and green holiday colours to shine through.

Come on in and pick up some paper or decorations to make your own space a little bit more festive!

Modern take on the Classic Paper Chain

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

There is a nostalgia around paper chains for me.  I can remember sitting at my craft desk as a kid, piecing one together and feeling so satisfied by my accomplishment.  That is why I was so delighted when flipping through the pages of a new book in store, I came across a modern paper chain.  It is like a paper chain for adults!  All the fun of the classic paper chain, but with 100% more style.

Modern Paper Craft by Margaret Van Sicklen

The modern paper chain is just one of many fun projects in the new book Modern Paper Craft by Margaret Van Sicklen.  She has divided the book into 5 great sections: folding, cutting, scoring, pleating and recycling.  It has a little bit of everything for a paper fan.  Clear and concise diagrams make projects easy to follow.  In addition, it may sound silly, but a big bonus for the book is that it is spiral bound!  There is nothing more frustrating than trying to follow along with a book that keeps flying shut!

So my suggestion, as spring approaches, dress it up (whatever it may be) with a stylish paper chain.  Grab a book, get inspired and get a bit of colour and craft happening!
