Paper Projects

We love the feel, smell, look of paper – we print a magazine, so you’d expect that, right? We also love the idea of folks putting down their screens for a moment (after you read Inspire(d) online, yes?) and make something with your hands. It can be a great activity with friend, kids, or just for yourself. We’ve done a lot of different projects – from unicorn piñatas to mini-megaphones – and we’ll help you keep busy on even the gloomiest of days!
