The Paper Love Blog Hop - Spring Patterns

Welcome to The Paper Love Blog Hop. Thank you for hopping over from my designer friend Mary Tanana from the United States. I am so excited to be part of this celebration of paper. Paper has always been one of my favourite things. As a child I was collecting stationary ( and I think I still do but I did not confess yet ). I could spend hours and hours in stationery, paper and art supply stores.

I always enjoy printing out my designs to hang them up or use them for DIY projects. For this blog hop I made a small, simple "spring" collection of patterns you can use for a variety of DIY projects out of paper.

Loving any types of garlands I made a simple one out of circles.

Since Easter is around the corner, I also made very simple egg cups for the breakfast table.
