This year marks our 35th anniversary of inspiring you to Do Something Creative Every Day! In honor of our milestone moment, we’ve recently redesigned, making it easier for you explore our brand online.

Since butterflies are the perfect metaphor for profound change in one’s life, moving from one chapter to the next, we’ve been featuring fine paper butterflies in an array of our DIYs lately.

DIY Butterflies made of Fine Paper

    That’s so night and sparkling. We can use it decorate on the wall too.

    Great ideas! Thanks so much for this template. Will use it in endless ways. I am a long-time Paper Source fan and customer having taken lots of workshops in St. Louis and bought endless fun things online and in your stores.

  3. Can I use this paper on the silhouette Cameo?

    • Mike Koelling says:

      Yes you can! We recommend using the light hold cutting mat and cutting at a slower setting when using handmade fine paper.

    I would like to know how ‘stone wrapping paper’ is made please? Can it be made from just one particular sort of stone? I hoped you can also explain how it can be recycled?
    I did check out your blogs on this subject but cannot see any information.
    Thank you
