Crepe Paper Source

Here in Paris I get my crepe paper folds from BHV. In the US I get them locally in the Bay Area from Castle in the Air (including my favorite duplex crepe paper from Germany.) But I just noticed a new online source the other day at Paper Mart. I use them all the time for packaging and saw their huge crepe paper color selection (over 36 colors!) It’s nice to know there are good sources for when I move back.

    Thank you for posting this source! I have only been able to find crepe paper at one store in LA a while back when I made your fringe streamers and they only had about six colors. I just posted today a link to your flower garland and wish I had seen it sooner to order in some of the prettier crepe paper colors. Love your blog and all the inspiration! xo

    I JUST ordered from Castle in the Air about 10 minutes ago! They have a great selection of craft supplies–I was really impressed!

    ROY G. BIV posts make me crazy happy! I just had a multi-notebook project at work and color coordinated the whole thing.

    Thanks for the eye candy!

    I love BHV. When we were in Paris in May I spent over 3 hours in that store- it’s amazing! I have been on a huge paper decoration kick lately- I love its versatility.

    Bonjour Jordan !

    I don’t have anything to say about crepe paper …
    I just wanted to share with you some things you may like in Paris :

    – le concept store N2 (jewels) 5 rue du Bourg l’Abbé 3ème arrondissement
    – la boutique Bird on the wire rue Lesdiguères 4ème arrondissement
    – site MylittleParis (shops, restaurants…)
    – la librairie-boutique des Arts Décoratifs 107 rue de Rivoli
    – le site (about weddings, many DIY ideas)
    and, nothing to do with Paris, an English shop on line that I love : Plumo

    Have a good day and congratulations for your lovely website !

    A Parisian reader,

    This is awesome! Florist crepe is typically more expensive at places I’ve purchased before. I always get packaging stuff from Paper Mart and never noticed the crepe paper either! Thanks for sharing!!

    I have purchased tissue paper from Paper Mart and I love it! I used it for my daughter’s wedding last summer…and I’m still using the leftovers. Great quality and great service.

    Love from Lori C.

    Thank you so much for the links! Ever since I found your site I’ve been on the hunt for sheets and no one near me seems to carry them. I’ve been trying to substitute all your great ideas with streamers, which has been mediocre at best.

    Aaahhh!!! Paper Mart is my favorite. They are THE BEST for cheap, high-quality double-faced satin ribbon. I also get tins, paper and clear plastic boxes, gift bags, and tons of other great and not-at-all expensive stuff there.

    Wow, just in time. I’m doing lots for my wedding next week, and had checked at Dick Blick a month ago and they had none, and I wasn’t coming up with much at my favorite craft stores, either. This was a great resource not only for the crepe paper I needed but also about 200 yards of ribbon. Thanks so much!
