All Things Paper: A Quick Heart and a Book Giveaway

Paper Twine Hearts by All Things Paper

We’re big fans of Ann from All Things Paper and you might remember that we even had the honour to contribute one project to her book (read more about it here on our blog. Two weeks ago Ann suprised us with a great idea on how to use our paper twines to make quick heart-shaped knots that can be transformed into pendants easily – find the how-to here on Ann’s blog.

You can now enter for a 5 copy book giveaway of Ann’s book on GoodReads – we’re keeping our fingers crossed for you!

Weaving with Paper Yarns, Paper Twines and Paper Strips

Made by PaperPhine: Paper Twine Weaving: Woven Paper Twine and Raw Silk

Handwoven Fabric: soft “clouds” of raw silk fly on a base of smooth, rigid paper twine

PaperPhine’s creative chief Linda has been weaving with paper twines, paper yarns and paper strips for the past couple of years. Sometimes she combines the paper materials with other yarns and fibres to give the fabrics – literally – a special touch.

On top and below you can see a combination of strong white paper twine and raw silk fibres in the weft playing with texture and light. The silk fibres reflect the light beautifully while the paper twine has a warm, matte glow.

Below: Narrow strips cut out of handmade Abacca paper are embedded in a base fabric made of long-fibred white linen. As all the other fabrics shown in this blog post this fabric is a double-weave woven by hand on one of Louet’s fabulous Magic Dobby looms.

Made by PaperPhine: Paper Twine Weaving: Woven Paper Strips

The weft of the bottom fabric consists entirely of narrow strips of Japanese Washi paper while the warp is a regular, fine cotton yarn.

Holiday Cards (01)

PaperPhine: Holiday Card with Paper Twine

This year’s first Holiday card design. Made of high-grade, light gray bookbinder’s cardboard with a beautiful, smooth finish and some of our medium-weight white paper twine. The type is hand-set with a children’s stamp maker – we have a collection of these in the studio because they’re just so much fun and practical to work with.
Happy Crafting!
