I was recently asked to become a godparent, and not only was I honoured to do so, but I then wanted my godson to have something special to keep and remember the day forever by. I have been waiting to share this post with you all but I wanted all of the family to see the present I gave, before I shared it on my blog. Now that I am able to I’m going to show you the gift that I commissioned and was so pleased with!
After searching the internet and the pages of social media, I decided to go with a company who could fulfill my wishes to personalise a design to be in keeping with the day. I knew the sort of gift that I wanted made, but I had to find someone who would do a design that would fit my purpose.
This wonderful company is run by Caitlin and is called Paper Lace & Love. Specalising in Handmade Papercuts, that are then framed and personalised by her for your own unique circumstances.
I wanted a Christening gift to be specifically made with both my godson’s name and the date he was Christened on it. I was so impressed with the level of detail and also the professionalism of Caitlin for making the changes I requested with no questions or problems. I was more than happy to pay the extra for the alternatives and was very pleased with the final design.
The parcel arrived on the day it was meant to, and the packaging was both professional and appropriate for keeping the item intact. Wrapped up in bubble wrap and tissue paper, the final look of the frame was excellent.
Here is the gift, professionally framed and about to be re-wrapped by myself to become the present. I chose a blue background, blue for a boy, but Paper Lace & Love stock a variety of styles and colours you can choose from. Caitlin is more than happy to find things for people to make it special and unique to their situations.
As you can see in the next image, the level of detail is incredible, and I am in awe of Caitlin’s talent for paper cutting. She must have a high level of patience and a great degree of creativity to make such beautiful pieces.
My chosen gift was well received and will hopefully be loved by all as my little godson Lewis grows up. A wonderful and creative way of remembering a special day for a very special boy.
I cannot thank Caitlin enough for fitting me into a busy schedule, sending my gift to me within plenty of time, and for making the commission fit my needs exactly. I recommend her business highly, and would purchase from her again in the future if I ever need gifts of this sort.
I really hope you have enjoyed my review, and I will leave some links at the bottom of this post for those who wish to look at the other paper cuts available for purchase by Paper Lace & Love.
