Step away from the Hallmark aisle. Put down that overpriced boutique birthday card. Paper Palace, in Solon, is your chance to spread some shit out on the living-room floor and make something -- an ¨ber-cool greeting card, to be exact. The store houses the region's best selections of paper and craft supplies, the perfect ingredients for a birthday or I'm Sorry card that screams "creative." And the shop, while small, is staffed by crazy-helpful and knowledgeable folks, who will be way too patient while you fumble around looking for the perfect paper. The Palace also offers lessons and classes -- including Christmas and Halloween-card workshops.
