About that Tart?
Have you been wondering where this name Paper Arts Tarts comes from? It’s actually an old Melbourne Paper Arts idea from original founder of Paperific, Stacey Apeitos’. Back in 2005 Stacey ran a little event called Paper Arts Tarts at Mt. Waverly Community Centre, it was a bit quirky and different from the main Paperific Expo.
We thought it was a fun pun on words to re-launch our Autumn Expo. The kind of Tart we are referring to is the a lemon tart or caramel tart but ours is a Craft Tart. Our logo lady is actually holding a tart with her paper craft tools in it. Although she is dressed in red she is certainly NOT a tart!
