Small Business Saturday


Forget Black Friday – – this season, shop local and shop small! Please set aside some time to visit area businesses this season. You’ll be sure to find unique items and a level of personal service that only independent businesses can provide.

The Paper Forest will be celebrating Small Business Saturday with giveaways, discounts and more! Watch for updates about special offers that will be available for one day only – – you won’t want to miss out!

What is happening in December at The Paper Forest?



Next week Tami is teaching a repeat of the Distress Oxide Class. Two times are available on Wednesday, the afternoon class is 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm and the evening class is 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The class is $20 and the evening class is nearly sold out.



We also have Donna’s awesome Scrapbook Pages class at 5:30 pm on Thursday. This class is also $20 and you get to choose the name or saying above the fireplace. To round out the week we have our Crop and Shop weekend next Friday and Saturday.


On Wednesday the 12th Michelle is teaching the AI Watercolor Classes. The class is $20 and is offered twice on Wednesday, in the afternoon at 1:00 pm and the evening at 5:30 pm.
On Thursday the 14th and Friday the 15th, Tami is teaching the Card of the Month classes. This is one week earlier than usual to accommodate the holidays! The class is $20 and meets at 5:30 pm on Thursday or 1:00 pm on Friday. The Friday afternoon class is nearly full so give us a call soon to reserve your spot.
The Paper Forest will be closed on Saturday, December 23rd through Wednesday, December 28th so the staff can celebrate Christmas with their families. We will be OPEN from Thursday, December 28th through Saturday, December 30th since we already did inventory! We hope to see you this month!
