Paper Macrame by Griffin Carrick + Best of the Web

by Grace Bonney

I don’t know about you, but after a long holiday weekend, getting back into the swing of things took me a second. So I’m excited to relax a bit this weekend and catch up on some reading and movies and all the the things I indulged in over our break. Before we close up shop for the weekend, I wanted to share some of our favorite posts from DS this week and around the web. But first — these amazing macrame-inspired paper wall hangings by artist .

Interior designer and artist Griffin Carrick creates these “paper macrame” hangings from her home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Each piece is made of quilled 100% PCW recycled card stock that Griffin hand cuts, rolls, and folds into three-dimensional sculptures. I love the idea of combining two traditional crafts into one modern interpretation and the patterns she creates take a lot of patience, skill and time. I’m sharing some of my favorite pieces above and below, but you can check out more online at or her . Until Monday, have a safe* and happy weekend. xo, Grace
