art of the paper doll

We've been super busy here at the office, working on our summer events -- back to back weddings, which means, we're working a ton of really cool projects. I took a mini break to do some treasure hunting on the web (more specifically WeddingNouveau.com) and came across these ethnic goodies -- handmade paper dolls by Kirakirahoshi on Etsy.com. Check out WeddingNouveau.com if you have some time; it's a great resource to snatch some ideas for multi-cultural weddings -- I've recently become a big fan!

In the meantime, check out these card toppers. You can also mount these to make a paper cake topper, or even have 'em custom made for a unique engagement photo/keepsake -- much like the one designed and created by Ricky Nierva (last image) for the Scrabble wedding.

Kirakirahoshi's wonderful craftsmanship:
