LaunchHER says ::  Those who know us, know about our love of paper.  And these delicious little goodies from Molly Holly are some of our latest cravings!  We are particularly fond of the gift tags and confetti – love how Holly can turn anything from a dictionary page to old sheet music into a new family treasure!

In HER words ::

My shop is packed full of delicious paper goodies- I adore working with paper and enjoy creating anything from greeting cards to gift tags to paper confetti to toss at a wedding!  I draw inspiration from a variety of vintage sources- books, dictionaries, maps, magazines, children’s stories…  I walk through thrift stores imagining what I could cut up the books into. J  I am always challenging myself to make inventive things for my shop, and use paper in fresh ways. 

I have always loved scrapbooking and paper crafting, but when I discovered Etsy, it became a reality to actually do something lucrative with my hobby!  It took me a while to get my footing with my shop- I dabbled a little bit here and there at the beginning and didn’t take it very seriously, but this past year have treated my shop like a “real” job and it really has taken off.  I feel so very fortunate to be able to do something that allows me to work from home and be there for my six-year old son everyday.

My paper cutouts have been and continue to be my best sellers.  I have developed a huge line of shaped cutouts from vintage dictionary pages, vintage maps, and music sheets.  My customers have become a extraordinary inspiration for me as well in this area- they are always telling me what they have used my cutouts for.  Paper is no longer just for sticking in a scrapbook!  With the resurgence of an amazing handmade movement, my customers use these cutouts in a million ways:  scattering across the table at a dinner party or wedding table, using them to embellish wreaths and banners for home décor projects, utilizing them in kids projects, favors, and I’ve even had lots of flower girls dropping dictionary “flowers” instead of petals down the aisle!

My shop makes me SO happy, and I truly enjoy making each and every paper product for you all!
