These heavy-duty papers are so durable, you can create beautiful, vintage style wall hangings.
But gifts and wall decor only scratch the surface of what you can do with these decorative wrapping papers. We just posted a short how-to video that gives you some great ideas for using Cavallini papers in easy DIY craft projects.
Decoupage. You can cut out and place individual designs, or use larger sections of paper to cover an entire side of an item, as we did with vintage carrying cases.
Crate and tray liners. Using old crates and trays, you can make cool shadowboxes or display backgrounds for other treasures. Laminate them or coat them with Mod Podge for added protection. You can create some really eye-catching displays around your home with just the right paper. For example, use coffee themed papers as DIY kitchen shelving for your coffee mug collection.
Book covers. It’s easy to create fabulous book covers out of this heavy-duty paper. You don’t have to use tape or do anything fancy – just cut to size and you’re good to go!
Office desktop. Around the office, you can line a wood tray with office-themed Cavallini paper to create a unique desktop display, or laminate an entire sheet to make a fun and functional placemat.
Can and jar wraps. Wrap paint cans or glass jars with Cavallini papers and turn them into centerpieces for events or truly memorable gifts. Here’s an easy one: fill a wrapped canister with old-time candy for the coolest candy jar ever!
