Shopping For Stationery | Chinoiserie Style

Hi friends.  I hope everyone had a great weekend and Easter.  It’s not secret that I love paper products and today I’m sharing one of my favorite paper companies with.

I love beautiful stationery and as a business owner personalized stationery is part of my branding when communicating with clients.

 I was on the hunt recently for new notecards and my search led me to WH Hostess Social Stationery.   WH Hostess sells paper goods including stationery, party decor, gift packaging and personalized gifts.  Their designs are fresh and modern and I love the variety of patterns and colors they offer. Chinoiserie inspired designs are one of my favorite and WH Hostess has a great selection of chinoiserie stationery.

NOTECARDS

 I prefer flat cards over folded and use them for general correspondence with clients and for quick notes to friends. A few of my favorite designs from WH Hostess include their greek key, stripe, bamboo and plaid designs.

Monogram Ginger Jar Flat Notecard {7 monogram colors available}

Striped Letters Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 4 colors}

Bamboo Monogram Personalized Flat Notecard {available in 6 colors}

GIFT TAGS

If you think gift tags are just for gift  giving, think again.  Personalized gift tags with your business logo and name can be used as a creative alternative to a business card.  I use them to tag fabric sample rings or other design samples.  You can also use personalized stickers in the same way.

NOTEPADS

I jot down notes and reminders on a daily basis so a pretty notepad is essential to my day.  And love giving personalized notepads as gifts.

Holiday Hostess Gift–DIY Gift Tag Jar

Holiday Gift Tag Jar by ConfettiStyle

Is your holiday party calendar is already booked up?  If so, I know you’re on the hunt for creative hostess gift ideas.  I’ll be sharing my Holiday Gift Guides starting Monday but today I have a fun and easy DIY hostess gift idea to share.

No matter what type of holiday party we attend, my criteria for a hostess gift is that it needs to be creative, fun AND useful. This year I came up with the idea of creating a Holiday Gift Tag Jar filled with an assortment of gift tags and ribbon.  What I love about this gift is that it only take a few minutes to pull together and you can find all of the supplies you need for less than $12!  Everything you see here came from TJMaxx.

Holiday Gift Tag Jar by ConfettiStyleI used a glass jar for this hostess gift but you could use jsut about any decorative container that you want. The jar is purchased has a pretty embossed snowflake pattern on the outside but you could add  a sticker to a plain jar to get the same effect. And I purchased boxed sets of ribbon and gift tags which included enough of each that I am able tome two jars.

Lay out all your ribbon and tags and mix and match so that you jar includes a variety.  Fill the jar so that you can see everything inside and then tie a bow around the lid as a finishing touch. It’s that easy!

In addition to being a great hostess gift, a Holiday Gift Tag jar would make a fun gift for a girlfriend, co-worker or someone in your posse like your hair stylist or manicurist.

p.s.  A Holiday Gift Tag Jar isn’t just for Christmas.  You can make a year round version filled with all occasion tags and ribbon.

One of my favorite online stores is Zazzle.  I discovered them a few years ago when I was looking for business cards.  Boy was I amazed at the enormous offering of card designs and how great the prices were.  Since then I’ve bought a variety of paper products from Zazzle including address labels and wrapping paper.

Most recently I ordered some monogram stickers so I could make my own monogram notecards.

Gifting 101: Building & Organizing A Gift Tag Assortment

DIY Flower Bouquet - Copy

One of the most important items in my gift wrap closet is my assortment of gift tags.  Like jewelry to a wardrobe, gift tags enhance your wrap and add the finishing touch to your gifts.

Recently, I was organizing some of my gift wrap supplies and I realized that I had gift tags stored in different places.  I found tags I thought I had used up and discovered other tags I had forgotten about.  Right then and there I decided to take an inventory of all the tags I had and organize them so that they ready and available when I needed one.

Let’s Get Crafty: Marbleized Gift Tags

The other day I was cleaning out under the bathroom sink and realized I had a hoard of nail polish.  While I mostly wear red and pink polish I found a couple of unique colors in my stash.  Colors that would be perfect for making Marbleized Gift Tags which have been on my crafting to-do list for months.    

Slide1  Marbleized Gift Tags (1) copy

 
Supplies:
 
*  fingernail polish  – in a mix of colors
*  metal pie tin (from the dollar store)
* old cookie sheet
*  water
*  blank gift tags
*  wood skewer or toothpick
*nail polish remover – for clean up
 
Marbleized Gift Tags (2) copy
 Work in a well ventilated area or you’ll be feeling as swirly as your gift tags when you’re done.
 
Marbleized Gift Tags (4) copy
 Fill the pie pan with 1/4″ to 1/2″ of water.
Begin dropping the polish into the water but work fast as the nail polish tends to  solidify rather quickly.
Mix the nail polish colors together using your tooth pick.  The mix doesn’t look pretty at this point but the end result will be different.
 Instead of swirling the colors together you can also pull the colors in a line pattern to keep the colors a bit more separated.
 
 Marbleized Gift Tags (5) copy
Once your colors are mixed, lightly place your gift tag on to the surface of the water.  Don’t submerge the tag.  The polish will adhere to the tag.
 Marbleized Gift Tags (7) copy
 
Once you’ve dipped your tags lay them flat on your cookie sheet to dry.
You’ll get a different pattern and color combination with every gift tag and the fun will last for hours 🙂
Ta da…

 Didn’t I tell you the result would be great?!
 I’m headed to store today to pick up some more nail polish to make more of these beautiful tags.  I’ll have some for sale in my Ruffles and Remnants Etsy shop soon.
Happy Crafting!
