Thank you so much for the extraordinary job you did on the custom order you made for me! I could not be any happier. The star is phenomenal!

I could not be happier with the quality of the boxes or the amazing customer service. Not only did Emily make the boxes to match the palette I sent her for my wedding, but when I asked if she had any gold accented paper, she added gold accents by hand; when I asked for paper with sparrows, she hand drew little sparrows on the corners of many boxes. The boxes are consistently beautiful, made in sturdy paper by a woman who is clearly both an artist and a perfectionist. Thank you, Emily....

Think outside the box for your custom order! :) I can create an origami creation out of almost any paper. Create a keepsake ornament from your leftover wedding programs, a magazine article about your favorite team, a sport program from a big game that you went to, you name it and I will tell you if I can do it! :)
