Follow these step-by-step directions to create a DIY paper wallet or custom cardholder.
1.) Begin by selecting any of our fine papers. We recommend a fibrous paper, like this Houndstooth Indian Fine Paper, so the paper won’t tear as you make creases and folds. Cut paper to 12″ by 12″ using scissors. Read the rest of this entry »

Can you believe that Easter is right around the corner? It is so early this year! So, if any of our readers are scrambling to complete plans for their gathering, I thought I’d take the pain out of filling those Easter baskets by recommending a few of my favorite gifts for Easter.
Celebrate with a fun and festive Easter basket. This year we introduced a few into our assortment. The Paper Birdhouse Box is an adorable basket option — perfect for holding candy and other small treats. Hang inside or outside for something fun to find! Our egg-shaped baskets are a lovely spin on the more traditional basket. We offer paper grass for filling!
Now, for the good stuff! We have added more than 100 gifts since the holiday season, including gifts for kids that are the perfect size for baskets. We have pulled together a few recommendations to make things easy — ask your store associate for assistance or shop our favorite Easter gifts online. Personally, Easter isn’t compete without the all-favorite Easter Bunny making an appearance. Surprise someone you love with this Bashful Bunny (or his miniature bunny friend) for a wonderful addition to your Easter festivities.

Many of us here at Paper Source cut our crafty teeth on the trusty ol’ scrapbook project – It was the original way to Do Something Creative Every Day! You could doodle, or write, or arrange collected treasures to tell any story. There were no rules, and artistry was not a requirement. You could spend hours arranging everyday items on a single page.
Ah… the nostalgia.
Now, our favorite pastime has been resurrected with the new line of SMASH journals and accessories. Everything from the SMASH folio to hip SMASH tape embellishments, is now available at our store locations and online!
See just how SMASHing this line is by watching the video. Or simply share photos of your SMASH journaling on our Facebook page, and bring back the days of sharing scrapbooks with your friends.
Among the small treats that make me happy (in no particular order): chocolate, coffee, sheets of Lokta paper, new felt tip pens and, now, flip flop bracelets! I love mixing different color palettes on my wrist with stacks of these recycled bangles, and I absolutely love the story behind them.
These bracelets are made by a group of women in Mali (West Africa), who collect worn out flip flops, melt them down and draw the plastic into colorful loops. Everyday flip flops are reborn as unique, handmade bangles. One can only guess the journey each one of these lovely trinkets has taken. Read the rest of this entry »
The press is going wild for our new gifts and spring crafts, and here’s a look at what’s HOT for Mother’s Day.
In the recent issue of People Magazine, Jessica Alba suggests creating a Mother’s Day scrapbook. According to Alba, “Receiving a keepsake from your child that’s filled with pictures, drawings and poems is priceless!”
To create your own, she recommends our Brown Fabric 12 x 12 Scrapbook or gorgeous Gold Mums Photo Album and our 12 x 12 papers to style the book. Alba listed Flora and Fauna Papaya Flower Circle Paper, Goldfish Paper and Pink Sweet Cupcakes Paper as her latest favs. Mom is sure to love this unique gift, especially if fellow mother Jessica Alba thinks it’s sweet.
