September Newsletter!

My absolute favorite time of year is finally here! The weather, the colors, hot apple cider and so much more.  So much going on here at the Paperie too! We had a great Corrugated Collage Class on Sept. 15th. Thanks so much to all of the ladies that participated! You are all amazing artists. Here is what’s coming up:

We also have a couple of people interested in having the alcohol ink class again. Please let me know if you are interested, it would be on a Saturday afternoon.
Another thing to love about this time of year is all the cute and crafty decorations. Here is a little DIY for some fall pumpkins. I cut eight 4 in. circles for the smaller pumpkin and eight 6 in. circles for the larger one from yellow and orange papers we sell here at the shop. I trimmed off the bottom edge of the circles to make it flat enough to stand. Then folded the papers in half and glued them to each other. I trimmed the edges to make sure they all matched. Next I used “Terra Cotta” Ranger ink to ink the edges. Then cut out some 2 and ½ and 3 in. flower shapes using the cricut from green paper and glued them on top of each pumpkin. I cut thin strips of the green paper and curled them around a pencil. Finally, I took a little raffia ribbon, unrolled it, and twisted it together in the shape I wanted, gluing it on the green flower shape with the curls in between. Simple, but sweet. J

We hope you are enjoying this time of year as much as we are and wish you many fall blessings!
