Paper – from the moment it was invented by the Ancient Chinese (originally from vegetable matter!) to today where you can find it in every colour under the sun, marbled, embossed, fine like tissue paper, heavy like card and to be honest what would we do without it now and throughout history? Books, Maps, Telegrams, Love Letters, Treaties, Declarations, Newspapers, Wrapping Paper, Posters.
HOW IT STARTED….HER WEDDING
Local lady Emma has an infinity with paper and loves it as a creative material, it initially came about when planning her wedding, she had an unusual problem, she is in fact allergic to flowers (and so is her grandmother) so she set about making her bouquet, table decorations, venue displays and even buttonholes, centre pieces, cake decorations and keepsake favours ALL out of paper.
The natural progression then was the invites, the place cards, order of services and all the other wedding stationary she made herself.
So if you want something unique for your wedding or event, Emma will work closely with your theme or develop one together!
