Petit Collage 25 Easy Craft and Décor Projects for a Playful Home – Book Trailer from Petit Collage on Vimeo.


They say that making a book takes a lot of time. I have flashbacks of discussing this project with my agent while my toddler daughter was crawling under the the tables in a restaurant in downtown Manhattan. Crawling! My daughter is now entering kindergarten this year! So, yes, time. Lots of that and loads of glue, paper, love, and teamwork.

This book is an homage to Petit Collage’s roots, which started as unique handmade collages and evolved into a range of eco-friendly products. Our visual vocabulary remains based on the same love for paper and pattern that started our company. The projects in this book are easy to make and are for the whole family to enjoy. From a coat rack or step stool to use anywhere in the house to a baby mobile, blocks, mask or playhouse any kid would love.

Most of these projects require very few new purchases and are aimed to reuse what you already have or can easily find. All of the projects can be personalized or customized and include templates and step-by-setp instructions to make all projects your own.

I hope it inspires you!

I wanted to take a moment to let you know of my latest picture book, published by Dial/Penguin: You Know What I Love?

This book is my most personal project so far. It’s inspired by my daughter Matilda and her relationship with her favorite doll, as a reflection of our mother-daughter bond as well.

I’m blushing over the many nice reviews we’ve received so far, which is so nice to hear! I’m looking forward to seeing what you guys think.

XO Lorena
