What is is about crepe paper that speaks vintage and celebration at the same time? It quite possibly is the most enduring party decoration in the past hundred years. A paper that is textured, crinkly and colorful. Fun to craft with and inexpensive. Used in costumes, table covers and party favors.
I came across this menagerie of vintage crepe paper dressed party girls and I couldn't resist them. While some are fading, they have managed to keep their pleats in place over the years, well except for that "Marilyn" one. :-)
Streamers of crepe paper have always found their way into most of our birthday parties, now and as far back as I can remember. Here I sewed three of them together, gathering along the way for a recent 6-year-old's Birthday party.
Of course there are the colorful and nostalgic, crepe paper party cups or baskets, please don't call them "nut cups". So much fun to decorate. I will show you soon.
