Craft paper, or Brown paper, is a staple in our house. It’s handy for just about everything, from lining the table before a water color or finger painting extravaganza to wrapping gifts, to creating rustic, beautiful little pieces of art. I love it and I always, always keep a roll in the house. It’s the perfect base for all sorts of projects, can be used as a medium for art or as a venue for displaying it and it’s inexpensive enough to create large displays or forts or life sized drawings without it breaking the bank.

DIY Wedding Favor with a Twist – DIY Wedding
These favor bags are so clever, just a little craft paper printed on and then sewn shut. So much fun! These would be fun for holding confetti at a wedding as well! Seeds from your garden would stay safe in dry in something along these lines, making them great for giving as little gifts.
Altered Items – It’s in the Details
