1// How did Papertales begin? When / where / how did it all start?
It all began with a love story…For our wedding day I made all the decoration, invites and other bits and bobs out of paper. I loved creating things out of paper and finally screwed up my courage, took the leap and started something that is now rooted in passion. http://www.theprettyblog.com/wedding/mark-anja-old-castle-brewery-wedding/
2// Why do you do what you do?
Because it makes my heart smile to come up with weird and wonderful creations.
3// When you were younger what did you want to be when you grew up?!
Anything that would have allowed me to travel and explore our incredible world.
4// What inspires you when designing new products?
Pinterest, various blogs and humour. My ideas tend to pop into my head just as I am about to fall asleep and I then create and play with designs in my dreams. The challenge is trying to recreate that idea onto paper the following day.
5// What are your hopes and dreams for your products?
I would love to one day have my items in stores all around the world. And maybe even own a little shop myself.
6// About you…
What’s your – Top Song? “All I want is you” from the Juno soundtrack
