Crafter in my spare time who turns unloved fairytales and children's books into paper creations to cherish.

A couple of years ago I started volunteering at a charity book shop, and before long my shelves were overflowing with old, worn children's books that were too tattered to sell on. I love fairytales and can't help but rescue them from the recycling bin, no matter how torn and yellowing!

But what to do with them? There are only so many copies of Grimm's Fairytales one person needs in their life. I've always dabbled with crafting and in October 2012, laid up with tonsilitis, I was inspired by a crafty friend to make my first paper bauble. I started selling to friends that Christmas and ella betsy boo was born.

Thanks for visiting ella betsy boo on Etsy!

I'm on holiday from 27 May to 3 June, if you place an order during that time there will be a delay in shipping.

All my products are handmade using vintage children's books, rescued from scrap and upcycled to give them a new lease of life, and delivered in pretty handmade packaging.

I'll try my best to deliver within three business days but it may take a little longer with items that are made to order, particularly at busy times like Christmas. Please bear that in mind when you order - if you need anything quickly let me know and I'll prioritise your order.
