Great idea, great value too.
Perfect gift to send abroad.
Great idea, love to see old books being used
Perfect, love the idea of recycling old boos in this way.
Great stocking fillers, lovely idea.
I've always loved to craft; designing and creating unique, personalised cards and gifts is a passion that has turned into a business offering you the chance to enjoy something unique and personal of your own. I handcraft all the pieces myself making each one a true original for your special occasion.
You will never find another piece exactly the same as the one you buy. As my designs are made using vintage materials each one is unique; a true one of a kind. Some of the designs will be similar, but the pieces they're made from are all unique. It also lets me create lots of variety, which is something I love to do as there are so many possibilities! This also allows me to easily work with customers to offer exactly what they want. I love to receive customer orders and talk with people about what they'd like to be created just for them.
I love to upcycle and rescue vintage treasures and ephemera which are no longer in use turning them into something that will be used and loved again. This also helps to make my work unique and personal; it's great to be able to offer a customer a greeting made out of a text which is special to them and captures memories of occasions and times.
I hope you enjoy your browsing and shopping!
If you love upcycling too, you can visit my other shop here on Etsy for lots of paper ephemera for your own creations:

I've crafted for many years, ever since I was a child, and decided to turn my passion into a business. I love paper crafting and upcycling vintage papers - turning old unloved objects into new treasures.
Please check back regularly for my latest designs. Enjoy your shopping!
