What a beautiful way to decorate for fall! Make this DIY paper hydrangea wreath for your front door or to style your living space. For the petals of this hydrangea project I chose my favorite metallic text weight sheets in Ruby, Punch, Kunzite, Violette and Opal and to add an extra layer of color, printed them with a watercolor wash on a laser printer. You can dowload the purple, blue and green washes here. I then chose three leaf colors, Botanic, Emerald & Fairway. I picked the Emerald to pull out the color of my front door so you may choose a more traditional green if you prefer.
For this project I cut all of my paper petals with my Cricut Explore. You can download the SVG cut files below for your cutting machine or the PDF template to hand cut. For the full step-by-step photo tutorial just pop on over to my site! ~ 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
I am always so happy to see the spring camellias in bloom and equally as sad when these brief flowers are gone again for another year. To make their pretty pink and white bursts last a little longer, I have made a template to recreate the camellia from metallic text weight papers that you can get right here on paper-papers.com. You will find the downloadable template at the end of this post.
The text weight (not card stock) metallic paper I used is Azalea for the bright pink, Rose Quartz for the pale pink, Quartz for the white and Botanic for the leaves. I used this Gold for the center of the flowers. To give the flowers extra dimension I printed (with a laser printer) a pale pink watercolor onto the Rose Quartz and Quartz, that is why you are seeing three pinks. I also cut three blooms from the Quartz white with no printing for the white flowers. If you would like to reproduce this look, I can find the watercolor print over on my blog post as well as the step-by-step tutorial on how I made them. Enjoy! ~ 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.

Cute and easy project for the Do-it-yourselfer who is short on time:
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)
