Crazy About Craft Paper

I love craft paper. I use craft paper cardstock for making greeting cards and business cards. We've used craft paper on the roll a number of times for our boys' birthday parties. One year, we covered the table in craft paper and had the boys and their guests draw a scene from Star Wars. Another year, we drew a life-sized football player on craft paper, hung it up; and had everyone "pin" a football onto him while blindfolded for a fun twist on a classic game. Another year, we drew a treasure map on the craft paper for an Indiana Jones themed party and used it as a tablecloth and later artwork for their room. I also keep craft paper bags on hand for those times when I need a quick gift bag. I simply make a little decorative tag and attach it to the bag with pretty ribbon and I'm good to go. And how fun would it be to receive a package in the mail that was wrapped in craft paper and tied with string? Whether plain or patterned, craft paper is so versatile and has a timeless quality to it. Here are some lovely images of craft paper as well as links to a couple of fun tutorials. Enjoy!
