Fall Wreath Creation

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:

Bronze Text, Copper Text, Ruby Text, Antique Gold Text & Gold Leaf Text

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)

Amazing… 3D Model, made from metallic paper

3D Model made from Curious Metallic

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!

If you click thru to enlarge the bottom photo, you can find his copyright which shows how to reach out to Brian in the event his talent can be used to enhance your project.
