We wanted to thank Grace, once again for including us in her world of design. It truly has been an honour and we’ve really enjoyed our time here, sharing our ideas and passions with you all. We hope that you’ve enjoyed it, too; perhaps, even taken something away from this week. (photo by perfectbound)
For our final post, we decided to revisit papier maché. Typically, the thought of papier maché brings to mind balloons and bowls covered in strips of newspaper. The game has
changed since those elementary school days! We’ve gathered our favourite papier maché pieces for you today. It’s amazing what you can do with a little paper and paste: craft and recycle at the same time.

Stray Dog Designs has a shop full of papier maché goodies. From home furnishings to accessories, you can find that one great piece everyone needs. Handmade and hand painted in Haiti in a range of colourful low VOC paints, there really isn’t any reason not to feel good about one of their pieces! Who ever thought a papier maché table could be so pretty?
And for good measure, we wanted to include these lovely papier maché birds, from Viva Terra, and bangles, available from The Museum Shop of the Art Institute of Chicago.
There really is no limit to the things you can create. So don’t throw out that morning paper! Whip up some papier maché paste and see what you come up with.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
