Festive Christmas Papercuts

Unique Christmas Papercut Gifts

It’s that time of year again  It always seems to come out of nowhere!  As soon as my daughter’s birthday is out of the way at the end of October, the shops seem to be filled with copious amounts of tinsel, glitter and sparkle, TV is overrun with Christmas adverts and the supermarkets are blasting out Christmas songs!

I'm not complaining, as I love all things Christmas!  But it's a big reminder that I need to make a serious start to my Christmas shopping list.  Especially as I am now 28 weeks pregnant, I feel like I should be more prepared in case the baby decides to put in an early appearance!  (Although fingers crossed it doesn’t, because as much as I love Christmas, I’m not so keen on having a Christmas baby).

So I really should make a start on my Christmas shopping list.  I don't know about you, but I always prefer to buy handcrafted items.  They always feel more personal and they are definitely more unique.  Plus, I prefer to support other crafters and local businesses where I can.  And I know I’m not the only one, as the run up to Christmas is always super busy here at Paper Petal.  Whether it be people wanting our Christmas themed papercuts as a unique addition to decorating their homes for Christmas, or people wanting to have that special unique gift for their loved ones.  We have paper cuts for all ages and interests at Paper Petal.
