Adorable little magnets. Shipped fast and came packaged beautifully! I gave these as a gift to my boyfriend and didn't even unwrap to give them because the wrap job they came with was so cute. And we got stickers as an extra little gift! I didn't know I was buying local until they arrived, so that was also a neat surprise :) thanks so much for such a great item!!

The buttons are adorable! One's pin was a bit messed up (It wouldn't open) but it's nothing I can't fix. Shipping time was fantastic. Seller's response to issues is fantastic as well. Thank you!

This pin is the perfect size and is looking great on my backpack! It also came very quickly. The seller also included a "I love my fancy rats" complementary pin, which was an incredibly sweet surprise. I couldn't be happier with this purchase

May your paper and your life never be plain.

I have been interested in selling things since I was in elementary school. My first few business ideas included hemp bracelets, custom pedicures, and homemade chocolates. They didn't last very long because my family, although supportive, could only buy so many before having their fill of my schemes.

In some ways I haven't changed very much. I still like to make things that I would like to own, that others might enjoy too. And I still very much like to experiment and try new things. Though, my skill level has grown considerably since then.

Paper Never Plain is a shop for all of the things I like to make. Right now I'm just getting started but if you keep following my progress, I can promise it will be an interesting and hopefully exciting journey!
