A few papery things I've been working on...

For my Mama's birthday I designed a little present - 50 things we admire/love about our Mama. Each of the four sisters contributed and we tied the tags in little bundles with brown string. I found a cute jar at a market in Sydney, and we popped the 50 tags in and presented it to her at her Tea Party.

We love designing little invitations and event flyers, neither of us know a thing about design but we love it and that's all that matters right?! We currently tinkling with a design for our EP cover, exciting stuff!

Let me introduce you to the Tissue Paper Pom Pom (used here as a flower, but also looks sweet hanging from the roof or trees on nylon). For many years my family and I have made these super easy pom poms. All you need is some tissue paper (cheapest at discount stores/$2 shops), some thin wire or a stapler and some scissors. Check out the instructions here: Martha Stewart

These bags can be picked up at any packaging store, and are great for little gifts or treat bags! I used some stickers from a Kikki K book of stickers I bought last year, and found some coloured twine in the bottom of my nest of ribbon. These three are ready to be filled with lollies and dropped off to some friends.

And a little bit of wrapping goodness to finish up this post. Brown paper is my bestest wrapping paper friend, and I'm still obsessed with yellow, so it features a bit in these posts. Don't you love the cloud paper on the card?! (Spotlight NZ)

I spray painted these wooden anchors (Spotlight Australia) for our Christmas tree last year, and now I've been using them for wrapping presents. Washi tape makes any piece of paper look 10 times better - ahhhhh Washi tape I do love you!
