I wanted a special something to give a cheque for a wedding. Although the cheque will have to be folded, it's a small price to pay for a beautifully made envelope in the wedding theme colours. Thank you

Love this store. Have made a few purchases from here as these little envelopes are great for when you're giving gift cards or money as presents

Updates

Board game themed envelopes are 25% off for International Tabletop Day 2018. Great for gift promises, invitations and prize giving.
If you would like to purchase Easter gifts for delivery to the USA - please order before March the 8th (or order today for customised cards). USA shipping is usually 10 days but can be up to 3 weeks. Thank you.
I've now got over 100 designs of gift card / money envelopes in my shop including Easter themes. Easter egg envelopes make a great holder for messages from the Easter Bunny or to gift an egg hunt map/clue. I also have envelopes for Christian celebrations.

About

Raising funds for adults with MD

I really enjoy making cards and gifts but there are only so many people I can give them to! So, I decided to sell them and raise some funds for people living with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) in the UK.

All proceeds (usually between £0.30 - 2.00 from each card or gift) will be donated equally between 3 UK charities that support adults, in different ways, living with MD.

About my art

Each card or art work is made by myself, Louise Watch and designed to be unique.

My specialism is high quality gift card holders and special occasion keepsake cards and gift bags.

I have a type of dystrophy which means I can't move much of my body. So how on earth do you make things, you might ask?

Well, with my hands in the right place I can move my wrists and fingers a bit ... and you might be surprised at just what can be achieved with a few finger wiggles and some help from my Personal Assistants!

I hope you like what you see and keep popping back to see what's new.

You can find out more on my Oh How Lovely Gifts Facebook Page and on Instagram.

Frequently asked questions

All profits go to charity - tell me more.

All profits are split equally between 3 UK charities:

DMD Pathfinders (https://dmdpathfinders.org.uk) ,

and the Neuromuscular Centre Cheshire (http://www.nmcentre.com)

They all support adults like me, living with Muscular Dystrophy.

Packaging details

Cards will come in a sealed cellophane bag unless indicated on the individual item.

Some cards come protected in a stiff, gift presentation box.

I may recycle packaging and use it to send your order.

Glass items such as frames will be heavily bubble wrapped, boxed and labelled fragile.

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Returns

If you need to return your card/gift, please use the original packaging where possible.

As written within Etsy policy, buyers pay for posting items back. See general Etsy policy for full details. Refunds do not include the cost of posting the item back.

We can not refund personalised items.

Is the item suitable for children?

Shop gifts usually contain small items that could be pulled off by children. Some parts of cards may be made from metal, beads, buttons, foam, ribbon, plastic resins and paints/art mediums. They may become a choking or sharps hazard.

Because of this, cards, gift card holders and pictures are not toys and the information is provided to help you match the age of the person to the suitability of handling these gifts.

How quick do you post items?

Usually the same day if I receive the order by 3pm - but may be up to 3 working days (or longer for personalised orders).

Each items states whether first or second class.

I post via Royal Mail. Please note that posting is also called shipping time.

USA shipping details

Gift card holders and greeting cards would be sent by International Royal Mail for a Large Letter.

The buyer accepts responsibility for paying import taxes/duties. Items will be sent as none gifts (i.e 'other') for tax purposes when postage is declared to send from the UK.

Delivery is usually within ten days of posting but I can't guarantee this due to circumstances beyond my control. Occasionally it takes 2-3 weeks to receive gifts.

I can send:

* 1 hand made card or
* up to 4 gift card holder envelopes or
* up to 4 itsy bitsy cards

in one parcel. If you would like to order more than this, please ask for me to get a postage quote.

Please provide your full address and full zip code to help with smoother carriage.

Thank you.

What if I need to order more than one?

Please ask about larger quantities for any gift card/invitation envelope in my shop.

I can also arrange resale in the UK.

Use of glitter and card - environment issues

Do you use glitter on products?

I use paper and card that is purchased pre glittered with ‘no shed glitter’. This means the glitter will not come off as it is mixed and sealed with a glaze. It can not, therefore blow away or fall off to get into our oceans via wind or water supply.

Use of paper and card

Approximately 70% of my paper materials are from FSC certificated companies.

Products made with wood and paper from FSC forests means that you won’t be harming the world’s forests.

We re-use packaging to send your gifts.

Custom and personalised orders

For your orders which include choosing a design, colour or personalised words/dates:

1) Part of the personalisation is about you choosing a colour /design or words for your item. I will contact you within 24 hours to find out your preferences. Without these I can not start your order. If I don’t receive these details, the order will be cancelled after 2 weeks.

2) Please look out for e-mails via Etsy to confirm your choice or look at design possibilities etc.

3) I aim to keep you informed at every stage so I can get your order just right.

4) Do check out the make times in the listing and add this to delivery time to ensure it can be done for the time you need it.

5) These are for personal gifts and no part or whole can be resold.
