low-to-no waste packaging
supplies sourced from Scrap Exchange
scraps turn into handmade paper
Even though my passion involves a paper product I make it a priority to craft and package with as much recycled material as possible. And when I can’t reuse a left over container from embossing powders to tape dispensers and ink pads I donate it right back for another artist to use!
I find many of my stamps, paper, and twine from The Scrap Exchange here in Durham. If you haven’t checked them out yet I highly recommend it. They are a local non-profit that has saved tons of material from sitting in landfills. They believe in community outreach and instruction. Basically they’re the best.
I also shop at Paper Source – another company that believes in people over product. Many of their cards and envelopes are 100% recycled. Any Paper Source printed gift wrap is done so by family owned and operated mill that have been introducing water saving techniques and use soy-based inks. I believe in reducing my footprint as well as trying to #sendmorelove with my stationery.
