Shop Update and Display Projects


Yay we got some good news back from the realtor that our proposal was accepted for the new location for the shop . I can’t wait to get settled in and get back to work. I thought it would be nice to create some new display items for our guests to enjoy for our grand reopening.

I just love little containers to hold small treasures. They work great to keep the stock organized too! This project is also a nice way to upcycle those great wooden crates that clementines are sold in. We have a ton of them just waiting to be put to use.

Right now it’s holding a nice supply of envelopes waiting to be worked into a project. I inked the edges of a lovely paper then added a glitter edge banner. A ruffled crepe is a nice girly finishing detail.

I created this sweet little flower for the front of the crate…..but it just didn’t seem to match so I will find a different project for it. I started with a lovely sheet music vintage image from Graphics Fairy that I cut into strips and scalloped. I worked it into the layers of a velvety flower and ruffled it to give the flower lot’s of dimension. A few nice bit’s of lace to soften the edges.

I’ll be happily working at getting the shop open so I can enjoy seeing all my Paper Peeps again. Hopefully by the end of next month. I have some great  ideas for the shop to make it  new and improved!  Until then….I am enjoying hibernating and playing paper at home.
