Love Bunch Papers Make News

Love Bunch Paper PaksHave you ever wondered what happens to discontinued wallpaper books? There are thousands of wallpaper books containing tens of thousands of pages & each year many are ‘retired’ only to be dumped in landfills. We have always made a point of donating discontinued books to local schools & art classes but we still had more books than we could possibly give away & so we developed our newest product concept: LOVE BUNCH PAPER PAKS.

Discontinued Wallpaper BooksWe cut the wallpaper pages out of our favorite discontinued designer wallpaper books--Shand Kydd, Ralph Lauren, Laura Ashley, Antonina Vella, Waverly, Ronald Redding, Carey Lind, Candice Olson, etc.-- & have bundled the papers together based on complementary colors & themes for the pleasure of 'crafters' everywhere. These 'PAKS' contain at least 11 large sized sheets of wallpaper (the actual size varies based on the book the sheets were taken from) & several smaller bonus sheets. The Love Bunch pattern categories are: Damask, Classical, Contemporary, Traditional Floral, Textures & Finishes, Stripes, Novelty & Variety.

Sample of Wallpapers used in Love Bunch Paper Paks Love Bunch Papers are the perfect solution for scrapbooking & other craft projects. Included in each Love Bunch PAK is a sheet detailing the many ways in which the pages can be used. An interesting example of a craft project using Love Bunch Papers is illustrated below-a city-specific journal (in this case, the Big Apple--New York City) which was designed by Kaeti Wigeland. See the article, “Wallpaper Craft Ideas” on the back page of this newsletter for more inspiration & pictures of completed craft projects.

Customer Corner

We are pleased to feature some photos from one of our Australian customers who was so delighted with his first installation using a green faux marble paper pattern inside of molding frames beneath a chair rail that he purchased a peach-beige faux finish for another set of molding frames. The results are spectacular & create a very special ambiance. These are great examples of how, by using a limited amount of wallpaper, you can have a major impact on an overall design look. See the results for yourself.
