About paperfromheaven

Sales 6,108
On Etsy since 2009

Always a love for fabric

I first debuted on Etsy as HeavenBakedSweets in 2009 and within a few months I opened PaperFromHeaven. At that time I just wanted to do something to shake up my routine as a stay at home mom and make some extra spending cash. Soon I needed to make a decision, Etsy or a "real" job. I chose to make Etsy work for me to be able to stay at home with my growing family.

I began the journey as "Paper From Heaven" sewing and creating fun organizing products for kids in 2011. I overcame my fear of zippers and started creating essential oil bags in 2015.

From 2015 to 2017 PaperFromHeaven fully supported our family of six while my husband was in school. In the fall of 2017 my husband was called to full-time ministry at a church on the north coast of California.

The shop took a break beginning in 2019 after I began focusing on school and home life. Slowly gardening, canning, and life took over all of the sewing time. Near the end of 2021 the desire for sewing began and fabric started arriving in the mail begging to be turned into bags!

Sew here we are.

Hi and thanks for stopping by my shop!

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

Returns and exchange details
I get it, shopping online is difficult! Sometimes things just don't work out. If you are unhappy with your purchase please let me know. I will do my best to fix the problem. I want you to be happy with your experience here!

I accept returns on all items as long as they meet two criteria:
•The item(s) must be in their original condition (packaging).
•The package must be postmarked no later than 30 days from date of shipping.

Please be aware that the cost of return shipping is the buyer's responsibility. Upon receipt of the returned item, the purchase price (including original shipping costs) will be refunded to you.

Custom Orders are never refunded or exchanged.
Payment via Credit Card (on Etsy) or is required at the time of purchase.
Local pickup available! If you live near Fortuna, CA, contact me for a coupon code and to arrange pickup.

I only ship on Fridays, to help ensure the maximized sewing time in my studio. Your order will be shipped First Class USPS mail (unless you purchase a shipping upgrade at checkout). All orders are currently shipping within 1-2 weeks, please note that your item is usually made after you order it. *Please allow for this creative time, along with delivery time, when placing your orders* Custom/Large orders may take longer; you will receive communication as to the shipping time frame.

All orders will be shipped via first class mail, which unfortunately does not have tracking. I cannot guarantee the ship time, as customs has had the tendency to hold up items. I have seen packages take up to 6-8 weeks to arrive. If you are purchasing near a holiday please allow time for delivery. If you are worried about delivery and tracking please purchase a shipping upgrade at checkout. All Custom fees (import fees) are the responsibility of the buyer.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do not provide crayons to be included in your crayon/pencil rolls, because I want to offer the flexibility of what you'd like to put in your roll. There are many options of what you can put in your roll, so I want to leave that between you and your inner creative.

I am also available for wholesale orders.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me on ETSY or at Katie [!at]
