Hand Cut Paper Pretties

About Handmade by H

Hello! I'm Heidi, I'm 33 and I live in North Wales with my hubby Andy. We've got 3 children who are 10, 7 and 5.

My hubby bought me a papercutting kit about 5 years ago. I absolutely loved it right from the word go. I started making gifts for family and friends and then people started asking if I'd sell them. I had nothing to lose so I set my page up and away I went and the rest as they say is history!

I absolutely love how a plain piece of paper can be transformed with a super sharp knife and a ton of patience. At the beginning most of my work was designed on the computer but over the years, I've been practicing my drawing and now most of my designs are hand drawn.

I stopped taking so many bespoke commissions at the beginning of this year and set myself up with a super to easy to use website. I'm working on growing my range to cover as many occasions with designs that can be easily personalised and plenty of 'just because' designs too.

My mantra for this year is 'Work smarter, not harder'
