Announcement    COVID 19 update
I am creating & despatching orders while the post office is still processing parcels, my local post office is open & my home is virus free. Deliveries are a little ad hoc as they are centred around essential trips - but as I need fresh fruit & veg orders are sent out every week.
Please note I only use catering quality bamboo & always keep rigorous hygiene standards - I always thoroughly wash my hands before beginning any work. Finished items are cellophane bagged & I am the only person who physically touches cake items - we are currently a healthy household if anything alters or the post cannot process items I will pause trading

Here at Paper Jackdaw we love helping you add a personal touch to your celebrations.
Whether you are using our skills of paper wedding flower design or custom cake toppers to make sure you get your day your way.

We create specially coated paper bridal flowers to withstand an English summer.
You want your paper bridal flowers to reflect who you are, truly unique. Great! because that's what we do.
Whether the music of your 1st dance, a map of your favourite county or pages from a beloved book I can turn it into a flower.

UK based with international delivery

Nature inspired paper flower gorgeousness

I create beautiful paper flowers - flowers made from books, made from sheet music, from maps the choices are limitless.
It has been a long journey but it started like this...
Paper Jackdaw was born from my frustration at the lack of unique on the high street; each store I went into stocked the same items. Nothing there spoke to me, said anything about me or the person I was buying for, so I started making more & more of my own gifts & home decor.

As always happens with the creative bug you always have more ideas than house space so the decision to open Paper Jackdaw was made – named after a creature with eclectic tastes & a great fondness for all things sparkling.

I originally trained as a florist, and was taught the traditional way to create bridal bouquets. I bring these skills and traditions when creating paper flower bouquets, to give the flowers more depth & dimension. The flowers in my store are all created from my own designs, I will not bore you with the details of how long I spent studying & then re-studying cymbidium orchids to get the perfect shape (let’s just say lots). I have to say I am really happy with the finished results.

I adore working on bespoke projects it’s a fabulous chance to take a mix of ideas to create something that truly reflects the clients personality & wedding. There is something truly magical about the collaborative process, of working with a client finding the right papers & breathing life into them to create a beautiful & truly unique bouquet, buttonhole or headdress to make a special day just a little more special.

How it works:
Once you have placed an order I start tracking down papers that I think fit your colour scheme, I email you an image of the papers along with images of coordinating ribbon for the bouquet handle for your approval or tweaks (it’s a big day we want to make sure it’s right). I can also post samples if required. When the papers are agreed I start creating, cutting, gluing, varnishing etc. then I make your bouquet but before it is fully finished I email/convo images of your flowers to make sure you are happy with it. When you are I add the finishing touches package them with love & care into specially designed packaging, then I entrust them to Royal Mail -using their tracked & signed for service for UK deliveries your flowers should be with you the next day. No problem if you are outside of the UK I will advise before commencing your order the advised delivery time.

I would love to work with you to create a little portion of loveliness that adds up to making your unique day even more special.

Frequently asked questions
Do you take commissions?

Yes – here at Paper Jackdaw we love to create flowers* uniquely for you
* Book prints, quote bubbles, bunting "insert appropriate product here"...I make it I can make it especially for you.

How much can I change

Pretty much all of it, I create each piece to order.

Can I send items to be included

Yes. Depending on sentimental value or material I can include original materials or reproduce items to be included in your flowers

How much will it cost?

You can amend colours, change the book, add sheet music, more than happy to add little twists in so it really is personal to you - there is no additional charge for this.
For example: The Dracula bouquet is shown with book pages, with red & black leaves for £150.00 if you love this style but want Wuthering heights with pinks & greens it would still cost £150.00
If you would like something not listed please ask, I am happy to supply a no obligation quote

I am based 1000 miles away, do you post overseas?

I post my work around the globe, all bridal flowers are sent via a tracked & signed for service. All items are securely packed & boxed so they can resist the rigors of the postal system.

I am still based 1000 miles away, how do I know what my order will look like?

After your order is placed (& in the agreed timeframe) I make your flowers to an almost complete state & will email photos for your approval - this is the stage where tweaks can be made. This is the part where you need to be completely honest: I am not precious about this part of the process; all I want to do is create flowers you love. Honest constructive feedback every time, I cannot create something you love if you don’t let me know that you aren’t keen on the little roses & would prefer the daisies.

Does this apply to any of your work?

Yes, it does. Each commission is priced on a case by case basis - sometimes for smaller items there maybe a small additional charge for personalisation.
