Cycling through the Post

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Two of my favourite things: my bicycle and letter writing.

So why not combine the two?

Tucked inside each envelope is a little packet of bicycle shaped paperclips. And there’s a 1974 bicycle stamp on every envelope.

Now it’s time to bike over to the nearest post box and get these sent!



Items from this post available at The Paper Place:

– Bicycle shaped D-clip paper clips

– Red and white striped origami paper

– Bicycle stationery set by Regional Assembly of Text

– Letter-pressed bike card by Enormous Champion



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!



Queen West Art Crawl

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

This years submission for The Queen West Art Crawl is a sculptural piece by artist Nick Rubi. ‘Wanna pause it, but I can’t make it stay” consists of tree branches, Maruju Washi and sumi ink. The washi pieces are dipped into ink and hand mottled to achieve a shadow-like effect. The dyed papers are then sewn into “cocoons” to create an ethereal dance of transparency and light. The work will be on display until September 18th.
