Weekly Wrap #36 : Eco-Friendly Elegance

Handmade Banana Paper Gift Wrap

This screenprinted, handmade banana paper at Kate’s Paperie would make beautiful gift wrap, though I think that I’d have trouble bringing myself to use it because it’s just so pretty. It’s rather spendy, so I’d reserve the paper for very special gifts, and I think that the only embellishment it would need, if anything, is a white or silver satin ribbon. Simple. Elegant. The paper is available in silver on sage and silver on natural.

Have a great weekend, everyone, and see you back here next week. In the meantime, don’t forget to enter the Envelopments Roll-O-Decks giveaway. The entries so far are fantastic — keep them coming!

From the Shop Friday : Halloween Prep

From the Shop Fridays is a new feature that I’m introducing on Paper Crave, and I’m excited to bring you the first installment today! Every Friday, I’ll be featuring some of the new products that I’ve added to the Paper Crave shop during the week. Hope you enjoy!

This week, I’m all about the Halloween paper crafts. I know it’s still pretty early, but every year I have big plans for Halloween, and every year it seems that I just run out of time. So, this year I’m getting an early start and am adding lots of fun new Halloween goodies from Martha Stewart Crafts. If there’s one thing I know it’s that I’m getting the glow-in-the-dark glitter! I don’t know what I’m going to use it for yet, but I know that I must have it.
