Happy Halloween, pals!
Hope this post finds you all cozied up indoors today - eating soup, reading books, scarfing Halloween-sized snickers bars, burning candles, knitting away... maybe recuperating from the excitement of the World Series game last night?! You know, all those lovely fall things. We're working away here at the shop restocking shelves with loveliness for the coming weekend and I couldn't be more jazzed to FINALLY announce the arrival of Paper to Petal to our store shelves.
For any of you who don't know me, I am a paper flower-making fiend and I find this book to be such a lovely, vibrant, fresh new look at paper craft and floral design. It's clever and punchy and makes you want to get right down to business on some paper buds!
Composed by the husband & wife duo THUSS & FARRELL, this book is an aesthetically brilliant look into the construction of 75 different paper flower designs (along with a few other very sweet party decor projects) and gives all sorts of tips and guidelines about the best materials to use and how to treat white papers to make the perfect colors for your preference!
I'm smitten (big surprise) and hope you all will be too.
As an added bonus, we'll be carrying beautiful, brightly colored crepe paper at Gus & Ruby Letterpress this holiday season too, so that you can really build out your craft space with all the materials recommended by the pros themselves (OR supply a very lucky someone with the book and the goods to get their own paper-flower-party on!)
Feel free to check out this super fun promo video Thuss & Farrell did up to get everyone jazzed about Paper to Petal's launch: http://vimeo.com/69809455 and keep in mind that this lovely book will likely be a quick seller for us this season!
Thanks for the listen and get on with your bad grilled-cheese-and-cauliflower-soup eating selves today!
