Giveaway: Cardboard Sheek

Dec 17, 2013 | 72 Comments

I spent some time at the amazing Unique LA craft/gift fair a week ago checking out tons of amazing goodies from the most fantastic handmade artists.  When I came across Cardboard Sheek, I couldn’t leave their booth!

Coolest booth backdrop!

Really, I couldn’t leave it.

New friends!

Boss lady Sarah and her mom rock the cardboard/paint/twine game with the coolest garlands.  From tasseled garlands to big paper flowers, I’ve been seeing wallhangings everywhere and really need one in my life!

Holiday wall!

They hand cut each piece of cardboard which in itself is a feat!  I’m not the most handy with my x-acto knife, so I can only imagine that it would take me forever to make one of these.

I love the “Be Merry” one just because it works for everyone!  Also for anyone wanting to place an order, Sarah is offering a 20% discount for NDAD readers on all the holiday garlands!!  Just use NEWDRESSADAY20 as the coupon code when you check out.  I think I’m going to snag a few to decorate my place with.
