1. Lovely paper jewelry

    My sister, Stacey, is a talented artist and photographer who is always surprising me with fun things to wear to work, among other places. Her latest creation pays homage to the fabulous Paper Source catalog, which Stacey immediately opens and pores over for inspiration when it arrives in her mailbox. Accustomed to making our paper flower kits, as well as working with felt and vintage fabrics to make her own floral brooches, the colors and layout of the Paper Source catalog called out to her one day, asking to be transformed into a paper brooch.

  4. Handmade paper from a far away place

    We are well known for our collection of high quality fine papers – but how much do you know about how they are made? Some of our best selling Lokta papers – Black and White Paisley and Gold Mums on Cream – are hand-crafted by Nepalese artisans. The material used for making these papers is the daphne plant, grown in the Himalayas. The bark of this plant is cleaned and cut into small pieces, then beaten with a wooden hammer until it’s reduced to fibers.

  5. Will you be my bridesmaid?

    When it comes to weddings, popping the question is no longer just the groom’s responsibility. The tradition has taken new form, as brides begin to more formally ask their dearest friends, “Will you be my bridesmaid?” A simple and sweet question that’s been asked for years, has developed into a creative opportunity, and the result is often a delightful invitation style approach. When I got married, I decorated small Moleskine Journals and wrote a note on the inside, “love you so much, been through so much, will you be my bridesmaid?” As brides begin to explore how they would like to, “pop the question”, the bar it getting quite high, with some very innovative bridesmaid invitation card ideas.
