Paper is my all time favorite material to use. Back in the day, when I used to work with clients as a Graphic Designer, I would go to the paper suppliers and snag all the sample books I could get my hands on. I love the different textures and color effects that paper manufacturers use. You would not believe how many thousands of paper types and samples there are out there!

This is a round up of ideas I am featuring for National Craft Month. All month long I’d been coordinating with other creative friends to share fun ideas you can make. Check out the great list of craft project inspiration.
