Paper To You Giveaway
Thanks to the lovely ladies from Paper To You who share our love of op shopping I have a super sweet giveaway running.
This beautiful handmade posy made from a repurposed op shop children’s book would make a lovely gift for a friend, a sister, your Mum, a teacher…..
The giveaway starts now and see the bottom of the post on how to take part but now to find out more about the Paper to You team.
Paper To You
Paper to you was conceived in January 2013 after playing with paper designs and realizing we had a talent to create something truly beautiful and functional from something as simple as paper.
We are a mother and daughter team and have always been creative in our family, paper is accessible, cost-effective and comes in many varied forms such as thickness, colour, texture and construction.
Our philosophy has always been for our art to be sustainable and to reuse paper and give it a new purpose. We began by recycling our own old books and sheet music but in an effort to expand our range and manage the quantities required we sourced our materials from Op Shops.
Beautiful old books worn with time and discarded by their previous owners became our inspiration, particularly children’s storybooks. The quality of the paper and the beautifully drawn illustrations are now so hard to find in our digital world. These books allow us to make the prettiest of flowers, some delicate whilst others are colourful and bold. Old classics such as “Heidi” and “What Katy Did” are rare finds these days.
Our range has expanded and now includes old maps and atlases along with recycling advertising material from retail outlets such as our recent Kikki K Christmas catalogue flower range.
We attend a limited number of markets on the Mornington Peninsula and have also recently been part of a craft collective pop up shop in Yarraville. We have several florists who sell our flowers locally as well as in Point Cook. We are always happy to work one on one with our customers and you can order and buy direct from us.
You can follow us via our website, Facebook and instagra
We are Op Shop enthusiasts and can often be found in our local Op Shops but on occasion have been known to travel outside our own locale to source material for our art. Whilst books are our prime target squeals of delight can often be heard as we come across treasures from our past or that rare find that you had no intention of buying such as my recent acquisition of a “Star Wars” Yoda mask or a gorgeous seashell needing a new home.
Huge thanks for telling us a bit about you!
