Recently I came across this image on the Martha Stewart Living website and fell in love! But it also inspired me to point out an easy DIY solution. Using the Paper Source Fall Leaf Wreath Kit or Die Cut Fall Leaves as a templates, you could make this beauty out of old books, sheets of music, or newspapers. I love the red bow and found pine cones with the black and white paper leaves. I’d keep this wreath up after the holidays, to enjoy all winter long!
In honor of Earth Day tomorrow, we came up with these adorable origami hearts made from our own catalogs. This recycled craft really says, “I heart the planet.” In just six simple steps you can fold old catalog and magazine pages, even shopping bags, into wonderful decorations. String a cluster of hearts from a tree branch, add them to gift wrapped packages, or send them in the mail with an earth-friendly greeting. When you learn how you can transform old materials, you’ll think twice before throwing anything away!
Earth Day is April 22, and we have an eventful evening planned to celebrate. We’ll blend unique ways of being creative, with caring for the planet, in this years Girl’s Night Out: Renew, Reuse, Recycle! It’s the perfect combination of our classic crafting with a twist – using reclaimed catalogs, calendars and other papers to create origami paper wallets and fluttery paper flower notes with matching renewed envelopes.
The bonus of the evening is that we will be officially introducing our Silhouette Cutting Tool! We’ll show you how to create fun and flirty stationery, using one idea for two different uses. This machine is perfect for creating so many things, from custom vinyl for your walls to paper cut outs for cards and invites.
Spend some girly “green” time with us on Thursday, April 22 from 6-8pm – register online or at your local store. We’re sure you’ll enjoy sharing these great ideas with friends back home, turning magazines, mail and other found objects into wonderful gifts! Don’t forget you’ll also receive 10% off* your purchases that night, so plan ahead for Mother’s Day, Grad and Dad when you come. *Discounts cannot be used in combination with other discounts or for custom orders.
