things to do with paper

paper paper paper, I love you so. Never overlook the beauty of scraps.

it's really getting good when paper starts to take over the house.

some envelopes at the pre folded stage

i heart making cards again. for a while it became a chore so i stopped, but i'm back in the saddle again.

Utilizing illustrator Mel Stringer's work that appeared in Frankie, and some retro wall paper samples. blithe doll top right.


First create a whole world of cardboard. Does this remind you Michelle Gondry's science of sleep? (watch trailer here if you have know idea what I am talking about and want to know.)

wall features are always the the right answer.

so is having the ribbon play

Secondly, launch chaotic fight of people wearing cardboard costumes.

the only rule of box wars: try and keep cardboard on your person while ripping it off someone else's person.

Box Wars was held at cross street studios on october 31st. This is an international movement that you can find out more about here.
