Things made of Paper


I love paper!! I am a paperophile!!! Even in this age of technology with my trusty Macbook at my side I will turn to paper and pen to write down my ideas and thoughts or when I need to plan or program something.  I need the physical tactile paper and pen process to help it flow.   This paper dependency is part of the motivation (read most) behind the creation of my journals from recycled vintage books.

As part of my exploration of the crafting world I am going to do a series of Things made of.....  It begs the question how many different things can 'things' be made from?

 Tiny Stars by Rach of Missisaau. I think they would look great
scattered amongst candles as a table decoration


 Dress made from a phone book. Check out the rest of these on Flickr jolispaons

 These lights are fantastic! I want one or two by tesselight

I recently had the pleasure of winning this gorgeous
print by Narelle of ruby victoria.  So here I am  boasting :)


The detail in this paper sculpture by Allen and Petty Eckman
is breathtaking.
They have a whole series  of  Native American pieces.

I'm thinking of these for my daughters 21st...
 they are so beautiful - by prosttothehost

I found this company for Paper Party goods that are also eco friendly.
How yummy are these cupcake wrappers by green party goods
The possibilities with paper are endless.  It's one of the most versatile mediums around and I would have a reeeeeaaallly long blog post if I tried to do it justice.  I did really control myself and not just include lots and lots of stationery to which I am addicted and there are obviously lots of talented and creative people who produce amazing stationery.


What should I investigate next time???

Very nice finds Vicki!!! I especially love those poms and the cupcake wrappers. But I don't see how you can be old enough to have a 21 year old! In my mind, I imagine you are not old enough to have adult children, LOL.
