all about kraft + call for sponsors

i feel like kraft paper keeps popping up as the medium of choice for craft projects lately [ha! no pun intended]. i love the look and feel of it -- and especially enjoy the fact that kraft paper seems more eco-friendly since it is made from wood pulp and uses less energy and chemicals to produce than regular paper.

if you're not familiar with kraft paper, just think paper grocery bags -- those paper bags you get in the checkout line are the most common place to find this recycled paper. i love to cut up grocery bags or lunch bags, stamp them and use them for fun and different wrapping paper.

but, of course, there are tons of other uses for kraft paper too. check out a few of these latest finds from etsy and around the web:

rainbow notecards from aimoobaroo -- maybe one of my favorite kraft finds. i love all the colors!:

a mini pocketbook from hooray design shop [you can even get free shipping until sept. 14!]:



kraft circles from elles [great for journaling in a scrapbook layout, but i think they'd be cute as gift tags]:



you can buy your own kraft paper for projects from scrapbook companies like making memories or bazzil basics.

have you used kraft paper on projects? what do you think -- love it or hate it?

also, a side note -- i'm opening up the stationery place to sponsors. we'll have great low rates -- and special deals for the first month -- so etsy shops and letterpress studios [or anyone else targeting all of us paper-lovers out there] would have no reason not to sign up. email me at stationeria[at]gmail[dot]com for more info if you're interested!

  1. Those circles are so cute! Kraft paper is about the only paper I haven't used; I need to get on it.

  2. I love kraft too. It's like a good pair of jeans - it matches anything. You can make it casual, o glam it up.

    And yay for sponsorness!

  3. Kraft paper is awesome. It brings to mind repurposed grocery bags and stability. :)
