I realize that it follows a spring theme, what with the bunnies and birds and such, but I couldn’t help but post about this wonderfully elegant gift wrap after I came across it at the Kate’s Paperie site.
These papers would be at home on everything from a Father’s Day gift (don’t you just love the fish design?) to a wedding or shower gift to a child’s birthday gift (bunnies!). $4.50 per sheet at Kate’s Paperie.

I’m loving Nikki McClure’s 2009 Wake Up! wall calendar. Each month features an image of one of Nikki’s amazing paper cuts, each cut from a single piece of paper. This is one that you’ll want to save for your collection after the year is finished! $16.00 from Buy Olympia.

I’m so excited to see all of the books being written lately by independent artisans and crafters, and I can’t wait to check out Handmade Hellos… by the fantastic letterpress ladies at Hello! Lucky. The book presents more than 25 projects from talented paper artists and includes everything from card and envelope folding basics to Gocco screen printing. Sure to be an inspiration!
The book can be pre-ordered now and should be shipping after September 17 (tomorrow).
