Paper Art – White Doilies and Orange Thumbtacks

I love the way simple materials can come together to create something so beautiful – in the case of this installation, both a lovely decor element and a lovely piece of art.

Wedding Invitations — Papered Together

I’m back! My work trip ended up lasting a day longer than I’d expected – and although it was great to be in New York for a few days, I’m happy to be back home.  So, back to paper. A few days ago, I spent some time perusing the website of letterpress studio papered together, and thought I’d share a few of my favorite wedding invitations and ephemera from their custom work and wedding portfolio:

I love the detail shots on these invitations and rsvps – particularly the blind stamping on the rsvp, which is a great way to incorporate the design from the bottom border of the invitation without overwhelming the text on the rsvp.
