About ThePaperShutter

Sales 4,111
On Etsy since 2018

Hello! My name is Meg Segard. I am 18 years old, and I love cute fabrics, organizing, sewing, hand lettering, and photography. And I get to put all of these interests into my business, The Paper Shutter.

When I was 7 or 8 years old, my mom and grandmother taught me how to sew, and I loved making little things for myself. As I got older, I realized I loved to design and make myself purses and zipper pouches. I made a few things for friends here and there, but most of what I made was for myself. Then I thought about turning my hobby into a business. I do all of the fabric shopping (the most fun part!), sewing, photography, accounting, and selling. Over these last five months I have built up my inventory, my brand and my experience. I have learned so much and am grateful to God, my family, and supportive friends who have helped me start my business.

Now a little bit about my product…. All my fabrics are carefully selected, and our zipper pouches and other products are built to last. I offer various sizes of pouches as well as wristlets and clutches. I also make plastic lined bags that are great for make up or essential oils. The Paper Shutter also makes organizer inserts. These inserts fit perfectly into the medium pouches and can hold essential oils, cords and cables, LipSense, nail polish, or small toiletries. Our zipper pouches are great for purse organization, travel, baby supplies, travel, feminine products, toiletries, art supplies, money, essential oils, kid’s toys, pencils/pens, jewelry and so much more! It gives me great satisfaction to provide products that are not only useful, but also beautiful and fun.

Where did the name The Paper Shutter come from?
Well, originally I was going to have a photography business and do some hand lettering. So Paper for hand lettering and Shutter for camera. Then I decided to sell the items that I sew. I still love hand lettering and photography, and I love that I can use those talents in my sewing business.
