If you’re planning a Halloween party, you may want to check out Oriental Trading Company. They have some great deals on party favors, craft kits, decorations, paper goods, etc. Some of the products can be kind of cheaply made, so you may want to check out the reviews before purchasing. I used some products from Oriental Trading for my daughter’s first birthday party, and the reviews were really helpful. There are so many different products to choose from and the reviews make it easier. Also, I found some of the exact same items at iParty (one was even in Oriental Trading packaging!!), but the prices at Oriental Trading are considerably lower. I’m glad I checked out the site before I bought anything at iParty!

There are also lots of items that you could get to hand out if you’re looking for alternatives to Halloween candy.

This is also a great site for teachers to score affordable goodies for their students!

Review and Coupon Code: Mr. Ellie Pooh

October 13, 2010 at 11:07 am (Coupons & Promo Codes, Reviews) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

What: Exotic gifts and paper made partially out of elephant poo! (Yup, poo!) Mr. Ellie Pooh’s paper products are 100% recycled. They are made up of 50% fiber  from elephant dung and 50% post consumer paper. There are no toxic chemicals used in our paper making process. Natural vegetative binding agents, along with water-soluble salt dyes for coloring are used. Mr. Ellie Pooh’s papers are handmade, acid free and as organic as it gets. Mr. Ellie Pooh’s eco-friendly elephant dung paper and cardstock are a crafters dream come true. It is like it was born for stamping, scrapbooking and letter press. Each sheet is handmade with a texture and feel like no other paper on the market. It’s easy to tear and emboss. The colors are vivid, and because no harsh chemicals are used in the paper-making process, the sheets are acid free and pH neutral.

Company Mission: Elephants in Sri Lanka are being killed at an alarming rate. Humans are encroaching on elephant habitats and cutting down trees. When elephants come looking for food, they are shot and killed. Mr. Ellie Pooh LLC’s mission is to is to reduce some of the Human/Elephant conflict that is ongoing by opening handmade paper facilities in rural areas, training local villagers to make paper and hiring artisans to embellish their goods. Mr. Ellie Pooh believes that this newly created industry can directly contribute to the local economy and hopes that such an initiative will self educate the villagers into living, working and respecting the elephant by having them look at the elephants more as an asset instead of as a threat.

Review: I used this paper to make my wedding invitations 😉 We wanted to use recycled / handmade paper and were going for an untraditional type of invitation. I ordered samples of a few different kind of paper, and Mr. Ellie Pooh was by far the best! Maybe I’m biased because I knew it was also for a good cause, but I love this stuff! It has a wonderful rustic quality to it, but it is super easy to work with. You can even run it through your ink jet printer! We used it for the background of our actual invitation, we printed maps for an insert, and we even used scraps for tags for our favors. This paper is versatile, beautiful and environmentally friendly! What more could you want? Oh right, a great price! Well its got that too!

Check out all the great products at Mr. Ellie Pooh, and use the coupon code fairtrade at checkout to save an additional 25% off! This coupon expires on October 31, 2010.
