It all started with a concept meeting. Last September the Paper Crafts editors gathered around the table in Jennifer’s office to plan a brand new special issue. The idea was simple: practical solutions that every paper crafter could implement in their life. Sounds intriguing, right? We thought so too.
We started brainstorming what those solutions could be and within two hours we had six sections outlined and a pretty fantastic title: Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters. Fast forward a mere six months (trust me, it moves a lot quicker in magazine time!) and this issue has been written, edited, photographed, designed, final edited, printed, and distributed . And it’s officially on sale TODAY!
From making your own embellishments to using up those random paper scraps, Practical Solutions for Paper Crafters will help you make the most of what you have in your stash. And if your stash has completely taken over a spare bedroom, nook, or office, we’ve got over 40 practical and economical ideas for organization and storage. Just check out that fabulous cover for a few of them!
One of my favorite sections in this issue is Household Items. In it, we asked our designers to create projects that use every day items you would find in your home. From rubber bands and duct tape to paper towel tubes and wine corks, we were completely blown away by their crazy cool submissions!
