Welcome to Crafts to Keep.

I love creating unique cards and gifts and many of my items can be personalised. No two cards I make are ever identical; that is the beauty of paper quilling.

It is hard to capture the three-dimensional nature of quilled cards in photographs and my customers frequently tell me how delighted they are when they see the item in person. If you see something you like but would prefer different colours or occasion I am more than happy to be contacted at

Quilled cards may look delicate but can be safely posted by Large Letter. I do offer the option of a matching gift box for most cards.

I post my cards first class in a Large Letter box which can easily be re-used for sending the card to its recipient. If you are ordering more than one item from me I will recalculate postage and packing and send an appropriate postage refund.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop.

Love this


This handmade card features a fun, colourful quilled design of a hot-air balloon in a cloud-filled sky.

It would make the perfect card for someone retiring or leaving their job and you can personalise it by adding your own greeting to the front of the card to suit the occasion.

The white card measures 15 x 15 cm approx and comes with a matching envelope. It is blank inside for your own greeting.

If you would prefer your card to be wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a gift box then you can select that option instead. The box measures 16.5 by 16.5cm and is 1.5 cm deep approx. You can choose from a matching design or add your own text to the box such as a greeting or name. (Photos shown are examples only)

This card is a perfect gift to keep and treasure. Thank you for looking.
