A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining some local bloggers at the unveiling of the Ikea Paper Shop in Round Rock, and I'm so excited about what they have introduced! If you love color coordinated paper goodies, you definitely will want to stop by. There's fun wrapping paper, washi tape, gift bags, tags, ribbon and lots of stationery staples like notepads, note books, and even a giant clipboard!
They have a really fun collection of honeycomb paper globes as well. They come in some fun new shapes and of course some great colors. I love using these for party decorations! I'm especially in love with the tiny ones for decorating packages!
If you're a lover of paper, parties or gift wrap, you won't be able to leave the Ikea Paper Shop without an item or two - or ten. I came home with just about everything with a polkadot pattern. Not that you're surprised!!
