My Bohemian Summer Origami Bouquets

Origami Flower Bouquet

I am completely in awe of these handmade origami bouquets at My Bohemian Summer. Can you believe that these roses are made of paper? Wow. Summer Skillman, the origami artist who creates these beautiful bouquets, also creates origami flower favors and embellishments that are a wonderfully creative choice for bridal showers, weddings, and even for gift wrap embellishments. Here’s a little more origami eye candy from My Bohemian Summer, and you can check out all of the available bouquets and favors at Summer’s Etsy shop.

P.S. Today is the last day to enter the Red Oak Press Letterpress Birth Announcement giveaway, so head on over and enter if you haven’t already!

Campbell Raw Press 2011 Calendars

Campbell Raw Press just released their new fall and winter collection, which is filled with gorgeous goodies, including three new 2011 calendars. I love the idea of their Book of Days, which is a journal-type calendar with room for you to make note of memories and details that take place on each day. This is perfect for keeping track of milestones and special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, and graduations. The Book of Days is available in three cover pattern options: Floral on Black or Dark Green Mums chiyogami (Japanese silkscreens), or Sky Charts (vintage pattern, Italian silkscreen).

Campbell Raw’s 2011 Letterpress Handbound Book Calendar is absolutely gorgeous! This book calendar was a labor of love, evident in details like the intricate Coptic stitch binding, handwritten calendar lettering, and background hand drawn vine patterns. Each calendar is printed on soft bamboo stock and covered with chiyogami paper. Two blank pages follow every two months of the calendar and are great spaces to make notes about special occasions and milestones.

Also available are letterpress wall calendars, also featuring hand lettering and hand drawn vine patterns letterpress printed onto soft bamboo paper. This beautiful calendar would make a lovely wall accent, in addition to being a useful reference throughout the year.

Also available in the fall and winter collection are several fantastic holiday cards, which I’ll be talking about more later in the season, and handbound journals and albums that will make wonderful holiday gifts. You can check out the entire collection at the Campbell Raw Press website.
