One of my favourite purchases of 2015 has to be the Flow Book For Paper Lovers. Jam-packed with over 300 pages of paper goodness, it makes me happy just to flip through it - there's so much to see (and do!)
Designed by the Dutch creative team behind Flow Magazine, the Book for Paper Lovers brings together artists and illustrators from around the world into one hefty treasury of colour, pattern and paper play.
Let's take a peek at some of the wonderful things inside...
(There's much more... but in case you manage to get your hands on one, I don't want to ruin ALL the surprises.)
There are plenty of patterned pages for writing snail mail.
Cute address labels (yes, they're sticky!) plus perforated pages of gift tags, mini cards, postcards to pull out and use.
Pretty papers for paper craft and collage.
Things to make and do - a colouring book section, paper dolls, buntings.
Adorable double-sided gift wrap.
A big fold out poster (it's double-sided too!)
Pages of stickers and a paper picado inspired garland.
And there's even a special pocket at the back filled with another garland plus pretty paper bags. (It's also a clever spot to store extra bits and pieces that you've removed from the book.)
I'm sure you can understand why I love it - I've never seen anything quite like it! I have finally started using it too - after simply admiring the pages for months. Beloved craft materials are always a little hard to use, but always worth it when you do!
Keeping my fingers crossed that they make a volume 3 (and keeping an eye on eBay just in case a copy of the first version pops up.)
If the book is out of stock, I recommend checking back a little later to see if its available again. This morning it was out of stock and then a lovely reader emailed to say it's back!
