More Paper Hardware and Free Digital Downloads

One of my favorite super-simple projects has come back around, this time in Country Living magazine. It’s paper hardware, crafted from actual photographed hardware.

You can find full instructions on my previous post, or in the November 2012 issue of Country Living (and on the CL website any day now with free paper hardware download,) for adding them to painted wooden boxes.

Special thanks to Ray of Ray’s Trading in Sebastopol, CA for resourcing the perfect padlock hardware for the Country Living project!

You can add paper hardware to virtually anything, but it would be super fun to add to furniture pieces. Check out this beautiful distressed piece I found at Sienna Antiques in Petaluma- gorgeous color inspiration with brass pulls and escutcheons (aka: key holes) that are perfect for dolling up a more moderately priced tallboy.

And here are more examples (created digitally for inspiration) using hardware I photographed at Sienna and other local antique stores. If creating your own hardware image files, always be sure you get the shopkeeper’s permission before snapping images of their goods. And remember, you probably have some cool hardware on a few of your own pieces!Here are a load of free printables to get you started on your own paper hardware projects! Click on an image for a larger file to download and print-to-fit letter-size paper (or full sheet label stock) or size to best fit your project. Trim out hardware, use a neutral color marker around the edges of the trimmed piece to erase the white edge of the paper, and add to furniture, journals, collages, boxes…anything! Feel free to use these also in your digital projects.
