Printable: Monthly Inspiration Art

The Paper + Craft Pantry Blog: Getting started!

Happy 2019 friends!

We’ve had a nice little break and we hope you guys had a wonderful holiday break as well. As we gear up for our second week back in the shop, we’ve got our heads full of inspiration and fun ideas for the shop + studio. And if we’re being honest, the overwhelming feeling of possibility also comes with a little bit of just feeling plain overwhelmed!

If you’re nodding your head as you are reading this, you’re going to agree that setting monthly intentions can work wonders. These little reminder nuggets can be so helpful and a great way for you to track your progress month to month, to direct you back to your “why” and to re-inspire you if you’re feeling like you’re in a rut.

We designed these monthly printables as a simple way for you to carve out time at the beginning of each month to re-set. To take each new month as an opportunity to start over, move in a different direction, at a different pace- whatever it is that makes you feel like you’re flowing through 2019.

Print one out at the start of each month, take the time to circle all the words that align with you- we’ve even left room at the bottom for you to add your own spin to this. You can add a word that isn’t on the print, leave a little note to yourself. And we created two versions- one incorporating our favorite mint color along with Pantone’s color of the year “Living Coral” as well as a minimal, black and white one that happens to look gorgeous printed on Kraft paper!

We hope these serve you this month, and into the rest of the year. Snap a photo and tag us @thepapercraftpantry so we can see your inspiration print in real life :)

Printable: Weekly Check-In

Paper Craft Pantry 2018 Printable Worksheet for Small Business + Every Day

We're officially one day away from wrapping up the first month of 2018! We've gotten so many requests to bring back a fun printable and we couldn't think of a better time to share our brand new Weekly Check-In worksheet! 

It's perfect to use as an accountability partner as you tackle each of the upcoming weeks, and a great companion to all your 2018 goals. This sheet reminds you to check in at the end of each week to reflect back on what happened, and cleans the slate for a new week ahead! Getting caught up with a ton of to-do's and our busy lives can quickly get overwhelming, so the idea of a simple worksheet being able to re-center your focus is pretty powerful. We've been doing this sheet every Sunday as we close up shop for the week - it's a wonderful way to carve out 5-10 minutes to create a little weekly ritual that has anchored our weeks and allowed us to finish out each work week with some "umph". 

We've even included a habit tracker because we really believe that by making day-to-day things a habit, we end up making it a part of our routine which allows us to remove it from our to-do list! And with each month taking us further away from the fresh feelings of the New Year, we're committed to using these sheets to hold us accountable and carry on this momentum on for the rest of the year! 

Want to join us in this weekly ritual? Download this sheet for free and print it out weekly (bonus if you share this fun new resource with a friend)! Be sure to tag us on Instagram so we can see your weekly worksheets in action :)

Printable: Free Downloadable Mini Notes

Pei Sim


paper-craft-pantry-blog-printable-nice-notes.jpg

With everything going on in the world today, it's easy to feel bogged down with the constant cycle of negativity on the news. For the most part, we probably all grew up with our moms telling us the importance of being kind to others, but it seems like we're at a turning point where everyone could benefit from a little extra dose of positivity.

Since we like to think it's the little things in life that make the world go round, we designed these mini note cards as a way for you encourage your neighbors, remind your friends how much you love them, and generally just spread some much needed "nice-ness" and joy in the community!

All you have to do is request these free downloadable Nice Notes, below, and print out as many copies as you'd like! 

Sweet Ways to Use Nice Notes: 

  • Add one to your bathroom mirror (better yet, leave one in your office bathroom so everyone can enjoy).

  • Leave it on someone's windshield to find when you're out and about.

  • Present it to a stranger who seems to be having a rough day. 

  • Slip it to a friend you haven't seen in a while.

  • Pop one in your neighbors mailbox, or leave one for your mailman! 

  • Print out a sheet and gift it to a friend, encouraging them to pass out nice notes in their community.

Don't forget, a little goes a long way. And you never know how a little encouragement in the form of a note can impact the person receiving it! 

p.s. Be sure to snap a picture and tag us so we can see how you're spreading nice-ness :)

How-To: Curate A Craft Cart

Paper Craft Pantry Blog How-to Curate A Craft Cart

Most of us, as adults, probably have a bar cart of sorts in our homes. It's almost like an "adult-ing" right of passage — an excuse to now have friends over instead of going out. At least, that's our excuse, since we are on team homebody over here :)

But how many of us take the same amount of time to curate a craft cart? Think bar cart, but minus the booze and glassware and add all of your favorite crafting supplies! It's a fun way to keep all your tools and supplies in one place that also happens to be portable. And it doesn't hurt that it also looks so cute!!

Printable: Stitched Wall Art with Allie Biddle

Pei Sim


Paper Craft Pantry Blog Wall Art

When we think of spring, we dream of bright pastels, motivational messages and updating our home decor! So, we partnered up with one of our amazing instructors, Allie Biddle, to bring you this simple but sweet D.I.Y. wall art that is just as easy as paint-by-numbers, and will look great in any room!

Allie is a designer and artist out of Denton, Texas who crafts one-of-a-kind hand embroidered hoop art and stitched mixed-media designs. If you're interested in learning more about embroidery, Allie will be teaching a Intro to Hand Embroidery workshop as well as a Hand Embroidery: Floral Bouquet workshop this Saturday in the studio! 

The beauty of this design is that you can pair it with any color(s) that compliment your current decor — from primary colors to neutrals like cream and sand. Keeping with the springtime theme, we chose a few bright pastels and even mixed up the design by alternating stitches to create a fun color-blocked design (like the one above).

Scroll down to request a copy of your FREE printable design, and get to stitching!

PROJECT CRAFT TIME: 20 MINUTES

  • MATERIALS
  • 100 lb. Paper
  • size 8 needle
  • embroidery thread
  • frame (optional)
  • scissors

First, you will notice that there are several dots arranged around the main design. These will act as your guide for stitching the completed piece. To prevent tearing, you will want to pre-punch each hole with the needle before threading the embroidery floss through the paper. 

Next, you will want to choose a color pattern for your piece. This would look great with one bold color, or several complimentary colors. You can stick with the pre-punched holes, or even add in your own to create a customized version (like the one below). *PRO TIP: Allie recommends using DMC threads for brighter, more saturated colors!

Once you have decided on a plan, you can begin stitching your design. After you're finished, pop your artwork in any 8X10 frame by trimming down your design, or hang it as-is from your bulletin board with a DIY marbled thumb tack

Don't forget to tag us on Instagram @thepapercraftpantry with a photo of your finished work. We'd love to see how yours turned out!
