A few weeks ago, a group of Chicago tweens joined us in our offices for a fun day of crafting Valentines! We were blown away by their creativity and their ability to make crafting a social, yet personal, experience.
We want to start this year off right by committing to a resolution that is sweet and simple. At Paper Source, we want to strive to make little changes to share love and kindness everyday. As a part of our #PSBeeKind Campaign, we believe that simple acts of kindness and a little bit of sweetness can go a long way!
There is nothing more heartfelt, than a handmade card from someone you love. We are thrilled that our customers enjoy DIY-ing as much as we do. With the overwhelming response & the votes being cast, we’re super excited to announce the winners of our Annual Holiday Card Contest!
If you’re making DIY holiday cards, tag us on Instagram using #PaperSource! We’d love to see what you’re up to!
Here are our 2016 Holiday Card winners that you all voted for!
First Place Winner — Stephanie K.
Second Place Winner — Sarah K.
Third Place Winner — Samantha W.
Paper Source Jury Prize Winner — Jamie H.
Jamie’s card was selected by a jury vote in our Paper Source HQ to be produced by us as a part of our 2017 holiday card collection. We loved how Jamie designed a sophisticated card that is both beautiful and classy. It’s on trend with the effortless touch of hand-lettering and will make a great addition to our Hanukkah holiday card assortment next year.
We want to see more of your DIY holiday cards or all those love-filled Valentine’s Day cards you’re making for February! Tag us on Instagram using #PaperSource or #MYPSValentine to share with us your creative adventures! We’d love to see what you’re up to and together we can do something creative every day!
