Hand Paper-cut Cards

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

I’ve been really inspired by some of the beautiful Rob Ryan items around the store lately. I thought that I would undertake some paper-cuts of my own. I free-hand cut the cards carefully with an x-acto knife.

I made a congratulations card for my sister who just had a baby boy from Night cardstock (available in-store).

I also made a wedding card for some friends using the folded cards (sold in sets of 10) and the Carta Varese Bluten u. Beeren 720 Decorative paper (available in-store).  I embellished the envelope with a rubber stamp in Robin’s Egg pigment ink.

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!
