Owl and Thistle- paper goods and gift wrappery

We are two sisters who like making things with our hands. Our collective backgrounds include educations in art, history, theater, costume design, interior design, graphic design and photography across three universities. We've worked in corporate america, private enterprise and local government, in libraries, publishing and dotcoms. We are from the Deep South, but without any accents though our skill sets would indicate Southern Renaissance Women! Of course, this begs the question... which one is the omniscient owl and which one is the tenacious thistle?
We started with Laurl wanting to do gift wrapping and Kristl wanting to paint clothes pins. We came up with many names and store concepts... some still on the dry erase board still in the planning stages. You see, we were raised knowing how to make things and how to teach ourselves to make. Once you have a general understanding of the making process- design, patterns, color theory, design theory, problem solving and researching- you can apply it to most things. We apply it to lots of things!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please contact me using the Etsy Convo system. I check the email address associated with this store, infrequently.

Why are my doilies stuck together?

Due to the die-cutting and embossing process of making doilies, they are created in leaves or sets. Each "leaf" of doilies are usually 3-4 sheet thick. So, when you get the doilies home you will need to carefully pull the leaves apart to get the total number of doilies you ordered.

Why don't I peel them apart for you?

Well, they ship better in the leaves and provide you with the best product when you get them home.

Custom and personalized orders

I do not offer samples, because my doilies are pre-packaged for faster shipping. Additionally, the color of the gold doilies can vary from batch to batch. Doilies samples ordered one month could be a half shade different, 6 weeks later depending on the batch.

Wholesale availability

I do offer bulk discounts on orders of 400 or more of the same size and color of doilies. Please contact me with your bulk order needs!
