Paper Crafts

Creating things with scrapbook paper is one of my favorite things to do. It comes in so many great colors and patterns which means the possibilities are endless!! Here are a few things I have made recently using a simple piece of scrapbooking paper.
A friend of mine is having a little girl in June and she is naming her Stella. She is doing her room in black and white damask with hot pink accents. Since I love monograms, I wanted to make her one that will match her room. I found this wonderful paper at a local craft store and it's perfect. Even though you can't see it in the picture, the white part of the paper is sparkly! I can't wait to give this to Stella's mommy for her room!
I see so many pretty Tussie Mussie's or paper cones, I wanted to try and make some myself. I love the soft pink colors of this scrapbook paper. I added some pretty lace, a ribbon, a rose and some pink Easter grass. These are really fun to make!
Another fun paper craft is these lovely banners. This particular one I made for my mother in law. She is a breast cancer survivor and is very special to me. This banner is made with pretty pink scrapbook paper and says HOPE in silver. She has this hanging on a mirror above her bed. I am so thankful that she is a survivor!

Paper is such a versatile tool-I just love it and can't wait to find more paper crafts to try!

All of your paper crafts are terrific. The new baby will certainly enjoy a sophisticated bedroom. I hope there's a hot pink teddy bear to keep her company at night!
