I appreciate that it's an up-cycled art. It looks professionally made. I love the placement and colors of the flowers. This seller is responsive, efficient, kind.

About

This shop is my foray into interent retail sales.

I have always made things with my hands from the materials that were available to me. This shop shows a selection of some of the items currently available for sale to the public.
Please click my blog on the right to get on my mailing list of information, new items, and coupon specials.
I make handmade paper from materials reclaimed from the waste stream. I use junk mail, cotton T-shirts, blue jeans, egg cartons, onion skins, corn husks, coffee cup holders, and much more. I beat these fibers in water until a fluffy pulp is formed. Then I add the pulp to more water in a vat and I stir to agitate the fibers. I pick the fibers up by dipping a mould and deckle into the vat and lifting up a thin layer of fibers that catch on the screen while the water falls through. I make a stack of the wet paper and press it under a car, then let the papers dry.
Voila! A New unique sheet of paper is born!

I have been making paper for 15 years, my paper can go through a printer and photocopier. You can also write, draw, paint, sew, cut, clue, sculpt, fold, tear, and collage with it. I do not use any dyes for my fibers, all of the colors are already in the material previously used from the waste stream. Please let me know if you have a special project and I will make a batch of paper just for you!

For wholesale accounts please contact me personally for my line sheets and website for photos of my items.

Frequently asked questions

Can the paper go though a printer?

Yes! My handmade paper can go through a printer and photocopiers. It can also be written on with pen, pencil, marker, crayon, colored pencil, and paint. It can also be glued, cut stapled, stuck, taped, torn, and sculpted.

Sizing details

My paper is sold in many sizes in packets, or groups of ten sheets. Please double check the size of the listing, and specify if you need a custom size. I can always double check the size for your project and create what you need.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I package my products in reused packaging in order to limit how much material goes into the waste stream. Please keep in mind that this does not always look like gift packaging. If presentation is important let me know!

Custom and personalized orders

I make custom paper. Please convo me about specialty sizes, colors, larger orders, shaped paper, watermarks, or specific invitations. I make the paper to order in what ever size you would like, even including materials from your life.

Wholesale availability

I sell the paper, jewelry, and Light switch plates wholesale. Let me know if you would like to see my line sheet for ordering. Please include your shop name and location. I have a minimum order of only $200 and I offer net 30 after your first order.
