DIY - GEOMETRIC PAPER ORNAMENTS – Party et Cie: Purveyors of Premium Party Goods!
DIY - GEOMETRIC PAPER ORNAMENTS

Paper has so many possibilities.  With just scissors, glue, tape and a little engineering, it can take any form or structure.  One of my jobs as a (former) designer was to take a 2-d sketch to an actual 3-d form.  It's an art form that combines math and creativity, and it challenges and fascinates me to this day. 

We are absolutely obsessed with our Daydream Society Merry & Bright collection, and wanted to come up with some table decorations that complemented its wonderful and vibrant pops of colour.  Although you can probably purchase brightly coloured ornaments easily, we at Party et Cie are die-hard DIYers, and we always love infusing a personal, homemade and handcrafted touch.  The results create a unique and one of a kind look to your parties!
