Happy Anniversary!

Paperphilia has installed the window display to commemorate Moleta Munro‘s first year in their London Street showrooms.

Armed with string, scissors and no tape measure, Rachel balanced on chairs and fiddled with knots until happy with the resulting hang and spin.

A lovely newsletter subscriber, in town for the festival, came to introduce herself (…and donated a Toblerone to the cause. Very welcome.) We chatted about workshops and rules and the temptations of Venice.

It was necessary to run in and out to see the effects from a distance and close up. Everything in the shop is scrummy. Whilst nothing was purchased this time, i have my eye on a reading lamp…(this one?)

Pop by for a drop in paper-folding session on 20th September between 2pm and 4pm. Wonder at origami possibilities, nibble on Danish delicacies and discuss your next creative adventure.

Grateful for the support provided by the calm and talented Rhiannon Connelly in the shape of documentary photographs and the inflating of origami boxes.

Thank you Moleta Munro for this anniversary commission.

PaperLove Countdown #2

WRAPPING PAPER

CountdownWrappingpaper

Don’t you just love parcels? Wrapping up presents is the best.

Choosing the paper, selecting which washi tape, working out the angles of fold, making satisfying corners, sealing up, adding ribbons or string…..oh to be a professional parcel wrapper. Wouldn’t that be brilliant?!

RobRyanHearttape

As we’ve already established, there’s never quite enough special tape in this house…particularly evident on discovering that Rob Ryan has added a delectable set of three small ones to his collection. Sigh.

But brown paper is pretty cheap, and rubber stamps are perfect for creating personalised sheets.

So who’s birthday is coming up? Could they do with some PaperLove?
