1. Create a D.I.Y. Photo Booth

    Photo booths are one of the most popular party trends – and for good reason, too! They’re interactive, fun and make for great keepsakes. We’ve come up with two great D.I.Y. options for popular summer events.


    To start, you’ll need roll wrap (we used solid wrapping paper, but patterns would be fun, too!) to use as the background. To create our sets, we pinned the paper to a cork board we had in the office, but you can also attach the paper to a ceiling or wall with heavy duty tape.

  2. Houston Inspiration: A Paper & Pool Wedding

    Without a huge budget for her wedding, but with a certain level of quality in mind, Houston PS fan Kristina and her husband knew just where to go for quality, accessibility, and the perfect color palette. With a hand from PS, a lovely bridesmaid, and creativity, Kristina found the essentials she needed for her Paper & Pool themed wedding.

    When it was time to start our wedding budget I knew we had to really save money and do the whole wedding with paper. One, I am a huge paper fan, and two, it was something that seemed to fit our personalities and theme. I have always loved the pool color from Paper Source so we went and bought all of the components of what we needed for our day. I didn’t go in with a real plan. All I knew I wanted was pinwheels!!

    I worked with TwoYellowShoes to design a custom template since I wanted the grapevines to go with our winery wedding.

    To complete her DIY place cards, Lisa adhered each printed card to a Plum Place Card using Double-Sided Tape. She used Clear Embossing Powder, the purple from her Petal Point Color Box Inkpad and Menu Set Rubber Stamp images to heat emboss each place card (the carrot indicated vegetarian, the cow was for short ribs, and the fish signified the Monkfish entrée).
