Paper Ornaments

catpaper.jpgPaper ornaments are the most playful and spontaneous of all or our Dresden Star Ornaments, and show an amazing variety of materials and subject matter!   Of all our ornaments they look the most like the home-made creations made by Victorian families over 100 years ago.  One of the most popular pasttimes for families during this era was creating home-made Christmas ornaments.  They used household materials and beautifully illustrated and embossesd die-cut papers called "scraps", which were imported from Germany and sold by stationers and booksellers in America.  These are the same original scraps that come from our treasured collection of century-old papers; we combine them with antique and vintage paper, tinsel, cotton, fabric, and spun-glass just like the Victorian families of long ago! Each ornament is designed from scratch as a brand new creation, and is hand-signed by artists Gail or Glenn Giaimo.
