That New Year Shine!

Happy New Year! A new year is like an unopened present. Pretty, shiny and full of surprises. We hope 2020 is your best year yet!

Last month we introduced our new Gold and Silver foil cardstock. Our foil cardstock is high quality 100lb paper with a metallic finish on the front side and white paper on the backside. These papers score, fold, cut and glue beautifully. Just check out this gold bow! You can purchase two sheets of 12×12 Gold Foil cardstock for $3.49.

We would love to see what you make using our products. Tag your photos with #etcpapers on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. We are always on the look out.

Snow SPARKLES!

Snow is falling all around … is it snowing where you live? ETC Papers is based in Las Vegas and we don’t usually get much snow, if any. However many of us work remotely and sure are getting dumped on. Freshly falling snow means snow days, slippers and craft time. Yay!

Inspired by snow, we’ve made a couple of winter cards we hope you’ll enjoy! We love the look of sparkly snow and tried to mimic that look on these cards using our White Glitter non-shed cardstock.

Add a little glitter to your next craft project. You’ll love the look. Even better, you’ll love that it’s mess free!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year from all of us at ETC Papers.

Tag those gifts – Make them sparkle

A personalized and custom tag can really push your gift giving to the next level. You don’t need much to make that gift packaging special. Here are two tag ideas that we hope inspire you to dress up those holiday packages.

These ‘FOR YOU’ tags features our Green Glitter non-shed card stock. We used a leaf die to create holly leaves and then added a few red embellishments to create the berries.

These ‘Tree SPARKLE’ tags features our Green Glitter non-shed card stock and our Emerald Glitter non-shed card stock. These two shades of green add variety to the repeating trees. We used a small tree die to cut the tree shape and then added silver rhinestone stars to the top of each tree.

Happy gift giving!

Candy Cane gift card holders

Gift cards are such an easy and popular gift. Everyone loves a gift card! Give that gift a little personal touch by creating a custom gift card holder. We hope this idea inspires you.

We created these sweet candy cane gift card holders using strips glitter cardstock. Cut 5 strips of red and white glitter cardstock approximately 6″ long by .25″ wide. The strips do not need to be the exact size, we used varying widths. Alternate the strips to created a red and white stripe pattern. Punch or cut out into a candy cane shape and add to kraft cardstock.

We used our Red Glitter Cardstock and White Glitter cardstock.

Happy November!

Today we are sharing a wreath created with a few colors of our Glitter Cardstock. We love the warm tones of these papers and how they appear in different settings. We can’t decide where to hang this little darling. What do you think?

Fall Foliage – glitter style

We can’t stop the falling leaves and we can’t stop creating fun leave decor using our glitter papers. This leaf banner uses three popular colors that are a great choice for decorating this time of year.

Supplies:

  • Bronze glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Orange glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Copper glitter non-shed cardstock
  • Metal hanger (accessory available from Tim Holtz)
  • Hemp twine

We had fun finding a place to hang this banner. After much deliberation we landed on the wreath outside our front door.

Decorating for Fall

A little banner goes a long way in adding a simple fall decor to your home. This small banner measures 10 inches when complete. We find this is a great size to drape over a photo frame, mirror or even works as a cake topper.

Like this color of Glitter Paper? This is our Bronze non-shed Glitter paper. It’s warm and rich and makes a great backdrop for the pale blue FALL letters.

Glitter paper is available
in multiple sizes: 6″ x 6″,
8.5″ x 11″ and 12″ x 12″. Custom sizes are also available.
