Look Mom, It's Handmade - Gloucester Street Paperie Giveaway

Sunday, April 18, 2010 Posted by Rita A


Here is another very crafty artist I am featuring for my Look Mom, It's Handmade event. Gloucester Street Paperie makes imaginative papergoods from recycled papers, books and other trinkets to make one of a kind crafts.



Welcome to the Gloucester Street Paperie, specializing in imaginative papergoods that add beauty to the everyday. All designs are matchless and exclusive, so be assured they are created just for you! Her favorite mediums to work with are paper, glitter, modgepodge and ribbons.

I love her paper designs made with pages from old books. I like seeing the printed words and it adds a uniqueness to the items. Gloucester Street was so kind to send a lovely Spring colored Mother Bird and Nest Ornament in Pink. It is darling! The little birds are cut from vintage books pages and the nest is made from shredded book pages on a paper mache background. No two ornaments will be exactly alike as the words can be different. One of my birds has the word curiosity clearly visible in the design. I like that added touch to see the words and know this was once a book. The ornament is a good size. Very creative indeed. It is a great way to make use of recycling products.

Gloucester Street offers a few ornament styles to choose from as well as other paper goods. You can find journals, recipe books, everyday cards and interestingly cute bird sculptures made from paper mache. Adorable. The prices are very reasonable and you are sure to find something really cute. She also likes to create custom orders if you have an idea in mind. Contact Gloucester Street for more details.
