These mini notecards have been handmade from vintage books that were sadly falling apart. Each card has been carefully covered with an original page, taken from the vintage book.
Each card is approximately 10.5cm x 7.5cm and is made from 300gsm recycled kraft cardstock, with a matching brown envelope. There are five notecards in each pack.
I am a self-confessed bookworm, and have a particular love of old books. When I started collecting vintage books, I was shocked to find out how many were thrown out or recycled every year. Even though these books were falling apart and unwanted, I still felt that no vintage book deserved to be lost like that. They’re still beautiful, and can be upcycled to make new things. That way the book is still enjoyed, even if it’s no longer in it’s original form 🙂
All of my handmade cards are made using small fabric remnants (both vintage and contemporary) and unwanted books. These are the books that have substantial wear and tear, and are on the verge of falling apart. The unloved books that would otherwise just go to the recycling plant or to landfill.
In an effort to be more eco friendly, I like to use second hand and recycled packaging when posting my products. If you would prefer new packaging, then that is absolutely fine. Please just include a message for me when you place your order, stating that this is what you’d like!

My name’s Stephanie and I’m 30 years old. I first became ill when I was 11, and my state of health has fluctuated since then. There have been periods when I’ve been able to live a 90% normal life, and periods when I’ve been bed bound. I’m currently recovering from a severe relapse that occurred several years ago. It’s been a slow process but over the past 12 months, my progress has been much more noticeable and my strength and stamina have built up significantly. I still have a way to go, but I’m getting there!!
I’ve found crafting to be incredibly therapeutic and it has significantly contributed to my wellbeing over the past year. I love experimenting with new ideas, and predominantly work with pre-loved books and fabrics. Selling my work has given me a sense of purpose and the means to be a little bit more independent.
