Paper Source is one of our favorite shops here at Rue. We are constantly picking up new fun invitations or greeting cards from the racks upon racks that fill the walls but usually breeze right past those tables with gifts and goodies in the center of the room. Last visit we gave them a second look and we have to encourage you to do the same. Plus, unlike many craft supply stores, Paper Source has a comprehensive online website which makes searching for project ideas simple and gives access to great supplies to those without a local store.

As to be expected, Paper Source has an excellent assortment of planners, calendars, journals and notebooks like this set of mini notebooks. They stock a variety of gift bags, as well as ribbons, stickers, and stamps to customize. A cheery orange chevron is perfect as summer transitions to fall. In addition to the craft supplies, Paper Source has excellent options to keep all your treasures organized between projects. These faux-bois document boxes will look great sitting on your shelves.

The decorative items are not limited to items made of paper, however. Paper Source has a great selection of candles for the home. There are even personal accessories, such as on-trend travel inspired scarf in turquoise and red. Match it with a colorblock pouch that doubles as a pencil case or clutch, and slip this fun and feminine iPhone case inside.

While paper and craft supplies may still be the first thing that comes to mind when we spot a Paper Source, next time we leave there will be a few extra items in our bag.
