Have you seen World Market’s extensive collection of handmade paper? It’s really beautiful! It’s a good weight/thickness as well, not flimsy at all. There are so many things you can do with it too. You could cut a piece to frame as art. I’ve also thought about using it as a backing for shelving (a book case or open cabinets).
The last time I was there, I picked up a roll of the large green poppy paper because of the great pink, gold, and green color combination.
Recently, I actually used a piece to wrap a magnum sized bottle of cava for an anniversary gift. Magnums don’t fit in regular wine gift bags so I had to come up with another method. I just rolled the paper around the bottle and taped strategically. I used a pink ribbon to tie around the neck of the bottle. You already know how I love wrapping gifts with a letter instead of a bow, so I draped a glittery letter from Michael’s here too.
I happened to find the perfect card to go with it! [Inside says: Celebrate! And enjoy many more happy years together Happy Anniversary]
Love the gold and the glitter – so cute!
I have enough of the poppy paper left to frame a piece to hang – just have to figure out where!
Have you used specialty paper for any projects lately?
