NSS ’12 : The “Food on Paper” Trend

I briefly touched upon the “food on paper” trend last week, particularly with the mention of Belle & Union, whose booth featured plenty of tasty paper goodies. But a number of stationers at the show blended food with paper to create clever, “pun intended” humorous, and evocative items, all of which are a part of this growing trend. As someone who is really into home canning (I try to make at least a few batches of jam every year – mmm, jam), I also appreciated the focus on gardening, home canning, and simple/homemade food.

I love how SusyJack* incorporated her original patterns into this incredible collection of recipe cards, coordinating tea towels, and personalized recipe boxes. As soon as I saw these, I instantly thought, “talk about the perfect gift idea for a cook or baker!”
