  3. Create a D.I.Y. Photo Booth

    Photo booths are one of the most popular party trends – and for good reason, too! They’re interactive, fun and make for great keepsakes. We’ve come up with two great D.I.Y. options for popular summer events.

    To start, you’ll need roll wrap (we used solid wrapping paper, but patterns would be fun, too!) to use as the background. To create our sets, we pinned the paper to a cork board we had in the office, but you can also attach the paper to a ceiling or wall with heavy duty tape.

  5. Crafting for July 4th with Straws!

    Independence Day is just around the corner, with just enough time to spruce up your place with some patriotic details! Our favorite crafting tool might surprise you….straws!

    These red and white paper straws are bright and cheerful, and work in three different crafts! We originally drew inspiration from a Straw Wreath How-To we’ve featured on our blog before. Although it was originally meant for Christmas, we love that all you need to change about this is the ribbon color (try Royal or Lake) and you have a whole new look that screams U-S-A. (Check out the step by step instructions here.)

    When it was time to start our wedding budget I knew we had to really save money and do the whole wedding with paper. One, I am a huge paper fan, and two, it was something that seemed to fit our personalities and theme. I have always loved the pool color from Paper Source so we went and bought all of the components of what we needed for our day. I didn’t go in with a real plan. All I knew I wanted was pinwheels!!
