{Summer Coffee Table Decor with AstroBrights Paper}

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I've been suffering from major bathroom re-do "tunnel vision" for the past little while!  What?  You noticed?  I apologize most sincerely.  Well, today I'm taking a break and doing something different.  With August a few short days away,  I thought it was probably high time I put away the patriotic decor and brought out something new.  The next major decorating holiday is Halloween {too far away} so I needed to come up with something bright, fun, and non-holiday specific in the mean time.
You're probably already familiar with Astrobrights papers.  They come in 23 bright colors so they're perfect for grabbing attention.  AstroBrights Paper is all about creativity and getting your ideas noticed. I really like the AstroBrights color pallet -- it's so crisp and cheerful, which is exactly what I was looking for.
How cute and fun are those?!  They're perfect because they're low committment -- easy to make and inexpensive!  Print out the pdf templates for the medium-sized balls onto some of your favorite Astrobrights cardstock.  Then you just have to cut out the flower shapes and slide the slits together.  Quick and easy -- just my kind of crafting.
I love the petal-y, flowery look they have.  It kind of reminds me of a modern sculpture of a hydrangea.  I think the bright ones look adorable in my white bowl on the coffee table for summer, but you could also make them out of Stardust White paper {love the AstroBrights names} and spray them with clear glitter for winter.  Ooooh . . . that would be cute hanging on my Christmas tree . . .
Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
Astrobrights is sponsoring the "Give a Brighter Year" Sweepstakes.    You can enter to win a cash prize and school supplies worth $30,000 for the elementary school of your choice.  This exciting campaign is going on now and will run through September 10, 2012.    Simply “like” AstroBrights Facebook page and submit a short online form to be entered into the sweepstakes.  You can then earn additional entries every week by revisiting the page and answering a few simple questions.  How much would your kid's school love you if you won that for them?!

  1. How cute are these? I should have done something like this in red/white/blue to help with my effort to decorate for the 4th around here. Adorbs :)
