Popsicle Valentine’s Day Cards

Monday, February 9th, 2015

Every year I always try to make fun Valentine’s cards for my close girl friends.  It started when the majority of us were all single and has just kept on going through the years.  This year I made some fun retro inspired popsicle cards.


I used cardstock and covered them with our Candyflake papers and popsicle sticks.  You can break them apart to reveal the message inside.


Hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day!

Custom Cake Topper!

This little couple will be sitting pretty atop of a yummy wedding cake!  With just a few bits, you can make a one-of-a-kind keepsake for your big day.  Just choose a few papers to match your wedding day wardrobes and get creative!  Add hairdos and distinguishing features like eye-glasses to make a mini version of  the bride and groom… you could even make one of your pets!  Wooden banner cut-outs make it easy to add some festive decoration.  You can embellish the wood flags with paper pieces to make a bunting in your party colours, a banner of a wedding day greeting or the names of the couple.  What a fun way to add to a special day!  Wooden shapes, papers, twine and glue are all available in store at The Paper Place!  Get crafty!

A Challenge of Creativity for March Break!

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

It’s March again and back for the 3rd year running is the March Break Kid’s Collage Challenge!  Proving to be a continuous crowd pleaser, this event helps occupy those little fingers while they are out of class for a whole week.

Drop by The Paper Place in person between Saturday, March 3rd and Sunday, March 18th to sign up for your free collage kit.  The kit will contain a variety of decorative paper and scraps as well as a large piece of cotton paper to create the collage on.  Just add glue, glitter, stickers, drawings, and whatever else you can find that help transform a pile of paper into a work of art!  Bring back the completed collage by Monday, March 19th and have it displayed in store for all of Queen West to see.  The works will be on display in the store windows from Monday, March 26th through the month of April.

Only one package will be given per child, under the age of 12.  This challenge is for kids only!
