Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers! Cards Galore!

Monday, February 13th, 2012

For most people, celebrating Valentine’s Day involves giving at least one person a card. With the variety of cute and sweetly designed cards at The Paper Place, your Valentine for 2012 does not have to be limited to your boyfriend, girlfriend, or spouse. How about sending mumsy a card? Or maybe your little brother, who is overseas at school? What if your best friend is the person you really want to send some love to this year? Well, take a peek at these cards–perfect for any deserving recipient!

Either of these cards is perfect for a best friend, a sibling, or maybe good old granny. A little note of love that is decorative, floral, and kind!

These two cards are inflected with a sentiment closer to romantic love, but can work equally well for partners, friends, and family. Having hearts in the design will bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Finally, sometimes whimsical design and a cute catch phrase delivers your Valentine’s Day sentiment best. This pair of cards is best kept for lovers! Telling your special person how they make you feel on a daily basis is as darling as the glasses and birds in the respective cards’ designs.

With love in the air over the next week, I can’t see a better reason to nab a pretty note, scrawl something mushy, and pass on my appreciation of those I adore!


Make someone’s Valentine’s Day this year with a DIY card!

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of the chocolate-roses-overpriced-dinner-with-a-side-of-forced-romanticism version of Valentine’s Day, but I *am* a huge fan of any reason to make things out of paper…and telling people that I love how much I love them.

And so, I got a bunch of photos printed from a recent trip to chilly Saskatchewan and some cardstock from The Paper Place. They were supposed to be cards, but I forgot to pick up envelopes, so they’re now postcards! Easy-peasy.

I pulled out my sewing machine and stitched the photo to the paper, and stitched on a heart to commemorate V-Day, but if you don’t have a sewing machine, you can always glue the photos on, or use pretty washi tape instead.

I also woke up the other morning with a burning need to make a pop-up card (it happens!!), and Valentine’s Day happened to be the perfect excuse for a little x-acto creating.

I used a quote from “Home” by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, stitched the cover on thick cold-pressed paper and got the apple popping right out of the card on the inside.

The perfect accompaniment for V-Day apple pie, non?

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!
