Weekly Wrap #43 : Avie Designs Wrapping Paper

Avie Designs Patterned Wrapping Paper

I am in full swoon over the new collection of patterned wrapping papers from Avie Designs! I always get a little giddy when I see gift wrap from independent shops because #1) not many shops have gift wrap in their lineup, and #2) the designs usually kick the butt of what can be found in the mass market. These gift wrap sheets from Avie are so very pretty — the bright colors and modern patterns rock, and I love that the patterns coordinate with each other, as shown in the beautifully wrapped examples above. Inspiring!

The collection includes five designs: Baroque, Sherbert Stripes, Mod Woven, Gray Gate, and Blue Tile.

From the Shop Friday : Autumn + Halloween Place Cards

Paper Source has some really cute paper place card kits for autumn and Halloween, and I just had to give them a little shout out this week. The monster place cards (top below) would be such a fun choice for a kids’ Halloween party, as would the owl place cards (middle below). And the gourd place cards (bottom below) would be great for all sorts of autumn occasions, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, and fall dinner parties. Each kit contains supplies to make a dozen place cards.
