I first discovered Astrobrights when my mom taught me how to create handmade greeting cards, about ten years ago. I fell in love with the bright colors. The cardstock style was perfect for my little projects. Then when Art and I opened our golf shop we used the regular thickness Astrobright paper to print sales flyers for our store.
In the years since I have found many uses for Astrobrights, including flyers and posters for church and school, scrapbooking and invitations. My favorite color is Solar Yellow, but I also think it’s fun to match the color with the season or topic, i.e. Re-entry Red or Plasma Pink for Valentine’s Day, Planetary Purple for a wine and chocolate party, etc. With 23 bright colors to choose from, there are so many possibilities!!
Astrobrights on Facebook has semiweekly challenges you can participate in to win up to $400 in gift cards. Just submit a photo of your design that fits the current challenge to be entered to win. This week’s theme is “Get Colorful” and the challenge is to make paper flowers. I have to admit paper flower-making is not in my skill set, but I would love to see your work if you decide to try it. The challenges continue until September 9th.
