Thank you bunny much

What can be more perfect than a bunny baby shower thank you card for a baby to be born in the year of rabbit? A letterpress bunny pull toy is perfect for this special occasion.

To make the bunnies even cuter and sweeter, I hand-painted each bunny with watercolor to add some whimsical touch. 

My first time mixing letterpress and watercolor, I was very happy with the end result. I can't wait to paint my next project!

Sweet envelope

Valentine's day is just around the corner, it inspired me to make something romantic and sweet. I have been wanting to work on a project with paper lace for awhile, and I think the result is lovely and perfect for a love letter.  

This envelope is fully handcrafted with kraft paper and paper lace for a rustic vintage feel yet with a touch of sweetness.

How could anyone not feel the love when you opened a card or a handwritten note arrived in this? It would also make any ordinary wedding invitation unique.

Fabric box

I had a chance to work with a high-end garment manufacturer on a project to repurpose their inventory fabric. They had a vision to make something nice to send their collection lookbook to magazine editors and merchandisers at various department stores using their leftover fabric from the production line, so this is what I can up with.

It is a pull-out box that is fits a 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.5" collection lookbook, or anything from pens to small notepads.

I thought the use of leftover fabric was awesome, not only it is green, it also showcases the quality of the fabric.
