Introducing Triplette Crepe!

By far, our most popular item in the Online Shoppe is our doublette crepe. With a different color on each side, the paper is perfect for making duotone projects. It's especially loved by crepe-paper flower makers.

We'd been scratching our heads as to what might be the next amazing craft item for the store, something even better than doublette crepe, when we discovered a new product in development from one of our German suppliers. We placed a pre-order for it months ago, sight unseen, and so when the deliveryman came in with a box from Germany today, we crossed our fingers, hoping that this would be our lucky day.

It is! We are so happy to share with you the first glimpse of the most incredible craft material on earth--triplette crepe! This special item is similar to our doublette crepe, except this paper has one...two...three sides, each a different color. We've posted several varieties of our triplette crepe to the Online Shoppe. Click to take a look. We think it's going to be a big hit. How will you use yours?

w fabulous! But I can't see how they have three sides? Can we see a demo of how they might be used?

J. Christina Huh said...

I agree with Shelley. Can you explain more how it works out to three sides (I can't stop puzzling over it!). Also, does it have different uses than the doublette crepe?

Fantastic! The 2 sided version is great, I can't wait to see this in person. Now I'll have something to use with my nonstick glue.

You're not the only people asking for more information about our triplette crepe. Friends have emailed us for sample craft instructions, and customers have been coming into the store looking for it.

Castle in the Air is one of the places in the world where the impossible is made possible, but sadly, the three-sided crepe paper is one magical thing we don't really have. It was an April Fool's idea we dreamed up and decided to share with you this year.

So happy April Fool's, and you can rest assured that for the rest of the year, all the too-good-to-be-true announcements will, in fact, be real, as so many things are at Castle in the Air.
