Must Have: Kraft Paper 3 Ways

As part of the Lowes Style Saturday event, I thought it would be the perfect time to share one of my absolute favorite items sold there - kraft paper.

Cheap and endlessly useful, its the kind of thing you can never have enough. There are just so many ways to use it in crafting, entertaining, organizing and decor but here are 3 of my favorites.

A 12 inch roll + a wooden dowel + a few pieces of hardware make the ultimate door mounted kraft paper roll that is perfect for everything from grocery lists to love notes.  Total cost is less than $5 bucks and it takes only a few minutes to install.

A larger roll can be drawn on directly to let your guests know just what they are being served AND makes clean up a breeze. Or use that very same paper to make giant flower wreath for a few cents. Once again, both of these projects are super quick ways to inject a little extra style in your home for almost no cost.

Any other kraft paper hoarders out there?  What is your favorite way to use it?

  1. I love kraft paper - I'm in charge of all the food related events at my girls' schools and I use it all the time. I like to scallop the edges and punch large holes in the center of each scallop. Sometimes I glue twine on in cursive - pictures here: http://www.thirdstoryies.com/2011/10/18/scenes-from-a-grandparents-breakfast/

    I also wrap everything in it - it looks great doodled on with black pens, and white wax pencils or prismacolors really look awesome. http://www.thirdstoryies.com/2011/12/13/brown-paper-packages/

    I love the oversized flower.

    1. Hi Kelly - I used a couple of different techniques from memory (i didnt use a template b/c I wanted something super quick) but I'm happy to make one if you 'd like to see how it was done.
