Holiday Greetings

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

It’s always great to receive a warm message from someone you love. Especially during the holidays. This year we have a truly lovely selection of boxed Christmas cards. Here are four designs that I thought were were quite special. Although, it was hard to choose just four.

Old School Stationers. Manufactured in Portland Oregon.

 

“Mistletoe” from Rifle Paper Co.

 

Letterpress with soy-based inks from A Papier.

 

Hand letterpress from Egg Press.

 

Some of the selection.

Decorative Paper Envelopes and Liners

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

I believe that first impressions are most important.  The outside should be just as special as the inside, so why not try setting the mood with handmade decorative paper envelopes!

Envelopes can be made out of just about any kind of paper you like.  I chose papers that complemented the notes and cards I was mailing. Matching the paper inside to the envelope to create an unique set. I made them even better by adding corresponding liners to the inside of the envelopes.  What a nice surprise to receive in your mailbox!

Katazome-shi and Nepalese handmade paper combined for some nautical inspiration!

Soft and pretty Italian paper note to send to someone sweet!

Bright floral Chiyogami lined in Japanese metallic to hold a special Katazome-shi postcard!

Washi tape embellished escort cards enclosed in baby Kiri-ita paper envelopes, so cute!

I made all of these envelopes and liners with super easy to use template kits!  New in store at The Paper Place, these kits have standard mailing sizes 4bar, A2, A6, A7, 5.75 square as well as a little baby coin envelope.  Definitely a must have for any avid card crafter!

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.

Also available… fancy paper treat bags, cupcake stands, scrapbooking stacks, and heart shapes paperclips!
