Description

A tactile 3-D Get Well keepsake card with a little flower made from newspaper yarn. Send someone some flowers created from bad news, that will not fade, look great framed that you can keep on enjoying for years to come.

Please message me to specify your custom colour!

Each card is individually hand crafted from handspun newspaper yarn and recycled card and is hand-signed by the artist. Size: A6 with kraft brown recycled envelope and sent in a compostable corn-starch wrapper.

"Goodnewsfrombad" is all about recovery, hope and transforming old stories (particularly difficult bad news stories) into new ones.

The newspaper yarn I make is carefully handspun from hand cut, thin strips of newspaper. I have tried spindles/shredders, but I find that using my fingers helps keep the yarn fine as possible as well as allowing me more control over the colours and textures produced.

I also think there is something important about knowing the newspaper has physically passed through the hands of the maker, which transforms the bad news stories and makes them a part of your stories as you send them to your friends and family.

Each card is lovingly made to order, and may look a bit different from the photo. If I can do anything to make this card fit your story a bit better then please drop me a line.

I also love making art from your stories, so do get in touch if you would like a commissioned piece to hang on your wall, perhaps even made from newspaper from a special day.
