Unlike most people, Monday is my favorite day of the week. When I reach for my Monday day-of-the-week undies, I know it's going to be a good day, since I'll be getting my weekly crafting fix with a vibrant bunch of artists at Craft Night at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn, NY. No matter where you call home, you can get this Monday glow (or any other day of the week, for that matter) by throwing a craft night of your own with your favorite crafty pals.

In today's edition of Etsy Finds, I've scoured Etsy for supplies, kits, and tools to help you open new doors in your own crafting adventures with paper.

For even more hands-on creative ideas, be sure to peruse the DIY Made Simple Gift Guide.


DIY Library

Bookbinding is a favorite craft of mine, and I will gladly talk your ear off about my favorite bone folder or the intricacies of paper, if you let me! If you're looking for a bookmaking project, might I suggest folding a weekly planner or stitching a do-si-do book? If you want to go DIY all the way, why not make your own paper, too?

Lasting Imprint

The world of do-it-yourself printmaking is vast and wonderfully varied. If you and your craft night crew are ready to get down and dirty with some ink and paper, I'd recommend carving your own rubber stamp or printing with a gorgeous hand-carved stamp, trying Gocco printing, carving a printing block from a yam, or tackling the ins-and-outs of screenprinting at home.
