Speaking of Valentine’s Day, Heather at Skinny Laminx has a great new design ready for the holiday. Inspired by the holiday, Heather decided to decorate her Cape Town store with a large-scale version of her “You Make Me Smile” papercut. The big version was so sweet she decided to turn it into a laser-cut Valentine’s pop-up card which she describes as a “perfectly non-threatening way of saying ‘you’re special’ to someone special.” I couldn’t agree more and think this would be a nice way of celebrating everyone from a secret crush to a good friend.

  2. SO cute!! Love this! I think I will try some paper cut outs myself & see what happens! Wish me luck!

  3. She is such a clever designer this lady, and from the growth that she is achieving with her business, quite an astute business person as well. As a fellow Cape Townian I can tell you, she does us proud.

  4. I love the store design too. Great store front graphics, awning and setting. That made me smile !! Lynne
