About PaperworkByMel

Sales 1,001
On Etsy since 2010

I started folding origami stars in college. They made fun and colorful garland for my first Christmas tree living away from home. A friend's mother loved the idea, and expanded on it by handwriting messages for a bride inside 365 white stars.
Years later, I found myself unemployed and began selling jars of stars at local craft markets. My first jar of stars to sell on Etsy sold to Australia, which was incredibly exciting for me, as I've always enjoyed travel but have never been to Australia. Soon, my stars were shipping all over the world!
Over time I have branched out from jars of stars with no quotes, to bags of stars featuring a wide variety of messages and customizable options.
