Best DIY Stationery - 2007
Rock Paper Scissors
If you think stationery is the purview of society mavens and harried brides, you really should get out more. Specifically, get out to Rock Paper Scissors, where you have the opportunity to acquire a fabulous new skill and fabulous new stationery every single week. This superbly stocked art store on St. Charles' quaint Main Street offers workshops each Saturday. Because absolutely no one should write letters on creepy Precious Moments cards (we're looking at you, Grandma), Rock Paper Scissors is doing more than just hosting awesome classes; it's offering a public service. Rediscover the lost art of correspondence as you pen communiqués on handmade cards and paper or jot down private thoughts in your own hand-bound journal. The teachers at Rock Paper Scissors also lead workshops on jewelry-making, scrapbooking, stamp-carving, paper-sculpting and more. Classes are affordable (typically $25 to $60, including supplies), expertly taught and just plain fun. Be sure to bring a little extra spendin' cash: You won't be able to resist Rock Paper Scissors' inventory of beautiful papers and art supplies.
