1. 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.

  2. 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!

This is the most challenging and exciting time of the year for the Paper Source Design Team and we were able to catch a peek behind-the-scenes of this incredible process.
