Leah Nikolaou in Somerset, England describes her decidedly feminine paper embroidery art pieces as "a fusion of vintage interests." In 2018, after working in media for a dozen years, she began collecting flowers on walks with her toddler daughter to preserve in a toy flower press. This brought back memories of the joy she had felt as a child doing the same activity. Around the same time, she took up embroidery, another earlier pursuit.     ..read more

Here's a very nice idea for decking the halls this holiday season... creator and author Robert P. Kelley messaged me to introduce his three new books that feature cut paper snowflake templates. Before you think, "I already know how to do that", let me say he has fine-tuned the process so children as young as three will be thrilled with the results of their handiwork. And by the same token, snowflake cutting can be just as satisfying at age 103 ..read more

I'm excited to feature a new book that makes origami simple... wait, that's actually the title in reverse!

Adeline has conducted paper crafting courses for years and is known around the world for her paper creations and the decorative papers she sells.   ..read more

I'm the first to admit that when it comes to holiday cards, I'm pretty choosy. Because I'm in touch with friends and family throughout the year thanks to social media and email, my list is quite short... and for this reason I'm okay with spending a little more on the few cards I do buy rather than grabbing just anything at my local discount store come mid-December.   While I was looking for a unique card to send this year, I narrowed down my choices and then had the thought, why not share them with you too? Perhaps all my clicking around on Etsy will save you a bit of time in the busiest ..read more

Perhaps you might recall Joone, creator of high quality craft kits, as I featured the small business a few times here on All Things Paper. Its paper stitching, paper collage, and paper cutting kits were fresh and appealing, and I was sorry when the company closed.   Lauren Venell, one of Joone's original owners, recently contacted me to say she has founded Maydel (rhymes with ladle), a new needlework supply company in Chicago that pairs ethically sourced supplies with inspiring projects from around the world. It focuses on crafts that are frequently overlooked in mainstream needlework, in ..read more

There are soooo many cool things popping up in Etsy shops for Halloween that I couldn't resist gathering a collection of spooktacular items that jumped out at me... BOO!    Best part? All of these finds are made of paper and can be displayed year after year.

It too was made of calcium carbonate so was similar to Rock Paper, but this new addition to the art and craft supply world has the attraction of being available in an array of pretty colors, as well as pure white.     Pumpkins Kit   ..read more
