This year for Valentine's Day we wanted to hang signs from the roof which
said 'love' in lots of different languages, so we went shopping!
What we found was lots of beautiful decorative paper! These
days, thanks to the popularity of scrapbooking, there are dozens of
specialist art and craft stores which stock gorgeous paper and cardboard
in every size, shape, colour and pattern imaginable. And it's
affordable and easy to use.
For Valentine's Day we stuck to our pink and red floral theme and chose
floral patterns. We used the paper to add a decorative element to
our hanging 'love' signs. We also framed some of the paper with
white wooden frames to put around the shop. The frames were really
effective and received lots of compliments and it really was just a
matter of cutting some paper to size and popping it in! You can buy
cheap wooden frames anywhere these days at op shops, two dollar shops or
department stores like Big W or Kmart.
Frames like these would also look great around the house. You could
try layering different paper together to introduce more colour and
interest, or mix and match your frame colours and sizes. And when
you feel like a change it's just a matter of hitting the art and op shops
