Vintage DIY: Pretty Paper Projects

We recently started carrying these beautiful Cavallini wrapping papers in the store with amazing vintage inspired prints.  These are originally meant to be wrapping papers but many customers are buying them to frame, or hang on their walls as posters.  At just $3.99 each, these papers are the perfect way to transform a room on a budget, or create a one-of-a-kind, personalized gift.  Check out some of the ideas I have come up with below, then come in to stock up on your favorite pretty papers!
Below is a selection of some of the Cavallini papers we carry now- $3.99 each:
