holiday wrapping

Hopefully this post isn’t discouraging to those shoppers who have not quite crossed the final item off their list this season, but with the 25th drawing near it’s time to focus on not what is inside the box but out!

The perfect gift needs the perfect wrapping to complete the experience. The outside of your present is a chance to get creative and The Paper Place has all sorts of neat little extras to make your gift stand out under the tree.

The first step of a fantastic gift is the wrap itself! Have a look at our beautiful and colourful sheets and rolls!

Every perfectly wrapped present needs a pretty ribbon or bow! We have rolls upon rolls of ribbon by the metre as well as adorable divine twine that is appropriate for any gift.

Keep track of who is getting what with some cute printed kraft tags or enclosure cards!

If anyone is looking for some wrap inspiration take a look at these presents done up in holiday coloured Chiyogami and funky nepalese papers, topped with our sparkly and satin ribbons.

Personalizing your own christmas tags is a fun holiday craft. We have lots of tags in various colours in packs of 25 just waiting to be decorated! The tags shown here were stamped with red and gold pigment, and tied with some fun cord.

I hope this post has gotten everyone excited to start their wrapping! If you’re feeling inspired come on in to The Paper Place to explore all of our festive goodies, you’re presents will be too pretty to open!

Vintage Inspired Stationery

Friday, July 6th, 2012

This month is Letter Writing Month here at The Paper Place; and who doesn’t love getting a little something special sent to them in the mail? I recently made some vintage inspired stationery for some dear pen-pals of mine.

I think that the Gampi Silk Tissue is probably one of my favourite papers right now.  It kind of reminds me of old onion skin paper, which I love.  I backed it with a piece of cardstock, attaching the two with Airmail Divine Twine. I used small rubber stamps for the text; which remind me of a vintage typewriter.  On the back cardstock I used navy Par Avion stamps by Cavallini (available instore).  To finish I used washi tape to create an airmail pattern on a plain white envelope. For postage I used vintage Canadian stamps from SendMoreMail (both available instore).

 

I also cut a piece of Kingin Stationery in half then stitched it to some colourful cardstock to brighten it up a little bit.  I thought that such a lovely handmade paper deserved a handwritten letter. I love its small gold flecks and the handmade edge.

Hearts can travel through the mail!

Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

As soon as I saw this pink, red and white twine I knew some mini Valentines were just waiting to be crafted. First, I typed little messages in red on heavy weight paper, then I sewed hearts around the messages. The hearts turned out a little lopsided, but sometimes those imperfections make things sweeter. I tucked them into tiny pink and white patterned bags and sealed them with gorgeous floral washi tape.

I hope your mailboxes are filled with love this Valentine’s Day!

If our front window bursting with giant red hearts is any indication, LOVE is definitely in the air here at The Paper Place! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, now is a great time to pick up a small gift or a witty greeting card for your loved one(s). We also hope to inspire you with love-themed craft supplies such as pink & red Divine Twine, wooden hearts and heart-shaped rubber stamps.


Nick hung these big hearts in the window by weaving strips of Nepalese paper through slits in the hearts. I made the little heart garlands (on the right side of the photo) by threading Divine Twine through small cut-out heart shapes.


Any of these items would make a great Valentine’s Day gift… Wooden Love Birds & Squirrelly Love sets, Love Me Tender & Love Story music boxes, You’re Sew Sweet greeting card.


Another great gift idea… Rob Ryan His ‘n’ Her Mug set. We also have a decorative plate set featuring his intricate paper cut-outs.


For the many loves in your life… Happy Valentine’s Day boxed cards! And to decorate… heart shaped Nepalese paper garlands, and pink washi tape.


We have an enormous selection of Valentine’s Day greeting cards available at the store. From left, Saving All My Love For You card by Egg Press (hearts in jars!) You’re A Fox card and beautifully illustrated Happy Valentine’s Day card by Rifle Paper Co.


This is For You by Rob Ryan, You’re Growing On Me and You Float My Boat cards by Egg Press (love the hairy dude!) wooden hearts, and pink, red & white Divine Twine for Valentine’s Day crafting.
