  8. The Perfect Gift (Wrap!)

    Don’t wait for the holidays to get into gift wrap! Birthdays, anniversaries, graduations…every celebration needs the perfect gift to accompany it! But as we all know, it’s all about presentation. No one wants to receive a gift that looks like it just arrived in the mail hours before the party! One of the best parts about receiving gifts is examining the beautiful wrapping the gifts are encased in. Paper Source has a variety of unique gift wrap for all occasions to give your gifts a perfect extra amount of style!

    Let’s talk about a few issues many of us face when wrapping multiple gifts. How do you signify that although your gifts may be different sizes, they are all extremely meaningful? One way to spice up the presentation of many gifts is to have each gift wrapped in their own paper, and all brought together by the tie of a ribbon!

  10. DIY: Washi Tape Ideas

    One of our favorite and simplest ways to get crafty is….with tape! We love washi and paper tape! With these DIY projects, your everyday items will look new, colorful and fun. Washi tape originates from Japan and has a typical masking tape texture, but is far from dull and beige. Washi tape is most often made from the bark of trees native to Japan (this is why some tape that is similar to washi tape is simply called paper tape if it does not come from Japan).

    Washi tape can literally be used on anything. It appears delicate but can actually withstand a lot. The best part? If you don’t like where you put it, just take it right off. It won’t damage or leave sticky marks on anything! It is the easiest DIY crafting you’ll ever do, so even if you think you aren’t too crafty this will quickly change your mind.
