Meet the Custom Paper Pack!
So you’ve got a copy of The Paper Year (good for you) and now you need to figure out what papers to use for all of the projects. Let’s be real – if you have to source materials for twelve different projects, you might never actually use the planner.
Enter the Custom Paper Pack. This thing takes care of everything for you – it’s full of scrumptious papers from around the world. And the papers are oversized just a bit so you’ll have some left over. Why does that matter? Well, then you’ve got scraps to put into your planner’s super happy paper swatch place made just for that reason.
Check it out. It’s like when you’re a kid and you get a loot bag at the end of a birthday party:
And when you take out all of the goodies, it’s nothing but pure happiness:
Here’s a closer look at some of those non-paper things:
Paper pulp? Hell yeah! In 2020 you’re going to make your own paper – with seed inclusions! Plantable goodness can be yours.
Truth be told, in my stash of paper I’m sure I have what I’d need to complete the projects. But I will say that the fun of the paper pack for me is that I get to discover new papers I don’t have. And who couldn’t use more paper? There’s some cork paper in there that I’m dying to play with. For each project, I’ll be mentioning other papers that would likely work for each one.
Stay tuned as I work my way through the paper pack!
** In the spirit of transparency, I need to mention that I received a Custom Paper Pack from Helen Hiebert to use for her planner projects, but I was not financially compensated in any way. All of the opinions expressed will be my own and will be based on my experiences working on the featured projects. **
