More Birthday Hats

One way to gauge how well I created a product is by feedback. So I knew I did a good job on Jade's 1st birthday hat when I was contacted by one of the client's friends to create her daughter a birthday hat. 

Little Fiona was having a butterfly themed 2nd birthday and wanted something in teal and hot pink. I had the perfect Damask print paper in hot pink to highlight the butterfly theme.  I decided to decorate the #2 with multicolored dots to give the hat a little more texture.  These cute dots were also carried into little 3D butterflies perched on name and number. And of course no little girls hat is complete without korker ribbon. I hope Fiona loved her birthday hat. I sure did.

Form Of Diaper!

This has to be my new favorite product, Diaper Notecards! These little gems came to fruition when a client contacted me to create something as a new baby gift.  She had no idea what she wanted to send as a gift but wanted it to be cute and useful. 

 First thing that popped in my mind was diapers; nothing is more useful for a new baby than diapers. But since PaperCuts is not competing with Pampers, we needed to be a bit more creative than that.  My second thought was how was the new parents going to thank everyone for showering there new bundle of joy with gift. Obviously, they would need thank you cards...diapers..thank card...diapers..I got it!! Diaper Thank You cards.  

The client loved the idea, so we sent 4 sets of Diaper Notecards to the new parents. From what I hear they plan to put this gift to good use :)

Great Way To Say Thanks

PaperCuts was given a little challenge by a client in the form of a Thank You gift. The challenge was to create a 8 x 11 wordbook that also doubled as a scrapbook AND photo album. This is what we came up with:

Luckily, according to the client this is exactly what she imagined and more.  She was ecstatic to pass this around the office to be signed and decorated by students and colleagues for a colleague who was moving on. The book tiered out into 4 pages and also contained 6 albums inserts for pictures.  What a great way to move on but save the memories!
