It is time to make another gorgeous metallic paper flower! How about a dendrobium orchid with 5 blooms per stem. Today I made my stems in an assortment of my favorite purple metallic papers. I used Violet, Amethyst and Punch all in the text weight. These flower are tiny to cut but once that is done the assembly is quite easy. For the full step-by-step tutorial, just pop over to my post right here. Below you can download the printable template or the SVG file for your cutting machine. Enjoy! ~ Lia
This cascading flower garland is a beautiful and easy idea for the backdrop for a wedding ceremony, a party photo booth or a dramatic addition to any room.
This garland template is printed onto letter weight (not card stock) Sage, Gold, and Poison Ivory, though it can be easily adapted to your needed color pallet. The PDF is three pages, one for each color of paper. I purchased my branch from a floral wholesale house, but you may be able to find one at your local florist on perhaps one that fallen from a tree. Just follow the tutorial on my website to create this beautiful spring decoration. Cheers! ~ Lia
Great project produced by Tracy for Oh My! Handmade. She included templates for easy to print 2-up Thank you cards but also included Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign files to help you make it your own! So simple, yet robust once the Adobe files are added.
What is nice about this template, you can print it on any paper you choose. Select shimmers to make it elegant or fiber papers to make it rustic and of course, pure cotton can create an impression. Different papers can set it apart to best set the mood and environment for this perfect Thank you card!
This 2-up can be printed on standard Letter Size Card Stock (or Text Paper for notes) & once trimmed, will fit into an A6 Envelope. Please note that A6 ENVELOPES are 4.75-x-6.5-inches, therefore your insert will need to be trimmed to approximately 4.5-x-6.25-inches.
If you are familiar with the softwares, you are able to change your size to accommodate any insert and envelope you desire.
Suggestions and hints:
- Take a standard 8.5-x-11 Card Stock Paper, Portrait direction, print 2-up with no trimming, but cut in half = A9 FLAT CARD which will fit into an A9 Envelope.
- Take a standard 8.5-x-11 Card Stock Paper, Landscape direction, print 4-up with no trimming, but cut in quarters = A2 FLAT CARD which will fit into an A2 Envelope.
Beautiful project idea for everyone to try… We’ve suggested popular papers that may work nicely.
Another amazing tutorial by Lia. She shows how to create a fall wreath and garland. We are always thrilled she was this creative and used our shimmery papers.
She used 5 popular Text Weight Metallic Papers:
We love to share creative ideas! You’ll find this to be a high quality tutorial with beautiful photos, template downloads and much more. Check out Lia Griffith’s blog for more creative ideas and Happy Autumn!(Just a reminder, Text Weight Paper feels much like the weight of letterhead paper, this is easily folded and workable for this project. Please do not confuse this with Cover Weight that feels much more like business card paper)
Check out this wonderful tutorial by Lia. She shows how to design Note Cards with a classic, vintage flair. Of course we are thrilled she used French Construction Whitewash Cover and Whitewash Text Papers to produce such a beautiful creation.

I love sharing talent and am always amazed by the designs produced with the simple everyday product called “paper”. Brian shared this photo of his 3D Model Airplane created from our Curious Metallic 92lb Ice Gold Card Stock Paper.
I incidentally came across this impressive work of paper engineering when he was kind enough to run our ‘help desk’ through a test and used this photo as part of the testing process. Thank you Brian for sharing your work and I hope the rest of you readers find it as amazing as I do!
