Giant Paper Alphabet Blocks

by Ashley Page Norton 

Paper is definitely my favorite medium! Here is a paper project you can customize in so many ways and you probably already have all the materials. These blocks are great to have on hand for baby showers, birthday parties, holidays, etc. You can use them over and over again, just put useful letters on them and make them in a color palette you love. This pink variety would decorate an adorable second birthday for a little girl!

Monster Party

My friend Eunice Moyle of the fabulous letterpress stationery company Hello Lucky showed me a picture of the ticket booth she made for a Monster Halloween Party. My first thought was “What a great theme for a party” and then I asked her to let me take pictures to share. She made the whole thing from cardboard and tempera paints, it is seriously genius! It’s just a reminder that the the best things are usually made from creativity and not expensive materials.

Make these paper mache dino egg invitations to get the party started. At the party, have your guests take part in a dinosaur posing competition – I’m sure the results will be hilarious!
