helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

I’m always on the hunt for unique decor items for my own home, so when I discovered Made by Julene I was tickled pink. Her collection of hand cut quote art became a quick obsession of mine, but I was also struck by how perfect her designs would be as wedding gifts!

The incredibly talented lady behind MadeByJulene just launched her new website where you can see her current projects and commission her for custom work. She’s also released laser cut versions of some of her more popular creations in her new Etsy shop! These laser cut versions are a much more affordable alternative to her hand-cut pieces but pack the same stunning visual impact. I’d still love to have something custom some day!

I love any of these pieces from Made By Julene especially as a gift for the first wedding anniversary. Did you know that the traditional gift for your first wedding anniversary is paper? Talk about perfect, right? Check out some examples of Julene’s hand cut paper quote art below… it’s sure to make any paper-lover’s heart go pitter-patter.

“I carry your heart. I carry it in my heart.”

This one, from a line of a poem by e.e. cummings is only available by direct purchase via email. I actually ordered this one for myself to display in our bedroom… I am planning on giving it to E on our first wedding anniversary! Shhhh… don’t tell him. *wink*

Which Made By Julene design is your favorite?
