We are starting today off with an update on all things crepe! First, we are excited to share that we have a brand new color combination in our double sided collection. Double sided papers are great for capturing the delicate look of the extra fine paper, but with a little more stiffness to make sturdier petals. Because there are two tones on the papers, it can create a beautiful visual depth with a lighter shade on the inside of the petal and a darker shade on the outside of the petal. We started with 5 double sided 2-packs, and with our newest pack we now have 6. The new 2-pack includes a combination of White & Vanilla and another with Vanilla & Chiffon. We created this pack specifically for JoAnn Stores, but we also have it available in our shop online. These colors are particularly fabulous for wedding projects, and our first tutorial using this paper is for the gorgeous rose buds in the photo above. What other designs would you like to see using this paper? Let us know in the comments section and we will bring your ideas to life!

As you may know, we have released multiple craft kit lines at JoAnn Stores over the last year, our newest line being the Paper Flower Garden. We are so thankful for our growing partnership with JoAnn’s, and they actually decided to join us on our #crepepaperrevival! In select stores across the country you can find all of our double sided papers (including the new white pack), floral tape and a 9-pack of extra fine crepe adapted from our 10-pack in the shop. Now you no longer have to wait for the crepe to ship to your house. If your local JoAnn Store carries the crepe, you can just head down and pick it up while you are grabbing your other crafting materials! We love anything that can make crepe paper more accessible for your crafty hands, so give the paper a try and let us know what you think!
Probably the most exciting piece of news that we have for you all is that, YES, we will be releasing brand new crepe color palettes! We are developing the newest packs as we type. While the extra fine that we currently have in our 10-pack features soft, natural colors, our newest papers will have more bold and vibrant color options. Get ready for new shades of yellows, oranges, blues, darker pinks and of course more greens. Thank you to everyone who has sent us color requests, we are thrilled that we can actually start making this happen! More updates soon, but until then you can browse all of our crepe paper flower tutorials for inspiration. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for daily doses of DIY in your feed, or join our crafting community in time to receive all the new projects that you can make with the new papers. Lots of love! ~ Lia & Team
