March is National Craft Month and we are here for it.  It’s hard to decide where to focus our monthlong craft exploration, so we are starting where we began as a brand: with paper.

Paper Source was born after our founder attended a paper conference in Japan and fell in love with the beautiful, handcrafted sheets – each their own work of art.  Today, we carry decorative paper from countries around the world, including Japan, Nepal, India, Italy and more.  Many of these papers are made by hand using renewable resources such as the kozo and lokta fibers used to make Japanese and Nepalese papers; or even recycled cotton rags – which are used in Indian papers.

The designs and colors are so beautiful they are worth framing… but there is a lot more you can do with these gorgeous sheets.  Here are just a few of our favorite paper projects from over the years.  Pick your favorite and give it a try this month!  Be sure to share your creations with us by tagging @PaperSource and adding #PaperSource!
