gift tags

21 Nov

I love wrapping gifts!

I get such a kick out of having wrapping paper, twine, ribbon and washi tape strewn all around me, patiently waiting for me to turn them into something pretty.

The only thing missing were little gift tags and so I created these…

There exists a certain type of person among us that gets a little crazy about collecting particular objects. I have seen people (and possibly done so myself) do a little dance and utter a squeal of delight when they stumble upon yet another bunny or bird to ad to their collection. And I sheepishly confess that I too am a little obsessed, in particular with polar bears and foxes.

I had already created my little origami fox brooch, but for the true collector, one item just isn’t enough, so I came up with this little fox while I was doodling one morning. Let me introduce you to… Julian the fox.

I have had the idea for these three little cards bouncing around in my head for quite a while now; and so I am rather pleased to have finally drawn them for all of you to see.

I hope you enjoy their quirkiness.

we go together like…
nutella and a spoon

pap and wors

rooibos tea and ouma’s rusks

a little card of love for you

12 Oct

Ever since I can remember I have been making my own cards, contentedly gluing, cutting and pasting paper into heartfelt little notes.

I think there is something very special about receiving a card that has been made with a ton of love, time and effort and so when I started making my cards for paper-tales I wanted to capture that feeling of “specialness” and love. I hope you will enjoy browsing through some of the little cards I have created.

in the beginning…

There are a few things in life that make me very happy (and sometimes even get me doing a little dance). My husband and Nutella rank right up there with some of my favourites, as well as any pretty paper products.  Ever since I was small I would linger in the stationary section of any shop and dream of all the different design I would one day create. It was therefore only a natural progression that I started creating designs to adorn my walls and spoil my friends with.

And out of passion and an overflow of creativity my little company ‘paper-tales’ was born.
