Leftover Letterpress

Here at Style Guide we love cute little cards and gorgeous stationery (especially stationery-aholic Jane!). Linda & Harriett's Redesigned Collection is the perfect way to celebrate an eco-friendlier start to 2010. The super sweet collection includes dress cards, flower pins and gift tags. Each item is reconstructed by hand from letterpress misprints, which is a fabulous and fun way to recycle paper that would have otherwise been thrown away. The thought of throwing away anything letterpress is to much to bare!

The flower pins ­paper petals are hand cut and sewn together with a vintage button on top and a pin on reverse. The pins are approximately 4" in diameter and vary in colour. These gorgeous creations can make fantastic decorative accents on tabletops, walls or even on a maid or groom and retail for $24USD. Dress card ­designer Liz Libré created various dresses for these cards, each showing off a mix of patterns and colors. Each card is different and paired with a light gray envelope and retails for $6USD. The tags are­ perfect for gifts, place cards or around wine bottles. They measure approximately 2" in diameter and are tied together with hemp twine. Tags are sold in packs of four in assorted colours and retails for $6USD per pack.
