My name is Cassandra, and my journey began on a day at the office, when the team decided to get festive and decorate our workstations for the holiday season. The best decorated and most festive office was to win a prize.
It dawned on me that the best way to set myself apart was to be original and creative and because of that most of my decorations were handmade. The team I was part of was quite creative!
Through light influences of Pintrest and personal interests of my colleagues, I (alongside my colleagues) was able to collect enough information to create custom decorations that would enlighten the workspace, the décor would bring fun and incite new life to the office and as a result, memorable moments have been created.
As the realities of COVID-19 took over our lives and forced us to work from home, I noticed the void in societal interaction. This brought up the memoir of comradery and good times we once knew and shared in life prior to the pandemic. I wanted to come up with a fun way to keep busy.
I quickly realized that some of the best moments that show thought, good memories, and deep meaning are generally captured and summarized in a nice card. I had the opportunity to express myself by sending out cards however, I could never find a card personalized enough to bring depth to the expression or message I hoped to deliver.
I had always toyed around with the idea of making cards myself to best deliver a unique message, thought, or memory in an effort to trigger a set emotion. With the memory of fun décor and the creation of memorable and unique cards, I couldn’t help but associate the felt emotion. As a result, Paper Beau was created and founded on the principle that each card could tell a story or enhances a memory or is made just to be fun. All with the objective of combining the beauty in paper made memories.
Over the next few years, we would like to expand our niche to offer more papercrafts, maybe even some stationary! Our hope is that you love the cards just as much as we enjoyed making them.
