Handmade, Eco-Friendly Gift Wrap Products, & Bespoke Children's Wedding Favours
Wrapped By Alice grew out of my love of gift wrapping; the process of choosing just the right paper for my friend or family member – something unusual that I knew they would really appreciate – then wrapping their present with love and care, before adding the final flourishes – the ribbon, a beautiful tag, and a personal message – and finally, seeing their faces as they unwrap their gift. Since opening my Etsy shop in autumn 2013, I have been able to turn that passion into a business, and now I get to be a part of that special process hundreds of times over, thanks to all my lovely customers!
My gift wrap products are nearly all printed by hand, and feature a host of quirky animal characters, as well as more traditional designs, inspired by British nature. All of my products are created from natural, eco-friendly materials, with all of the kraft paper I use coming from recycled and sustainable sources.
As well as my gift wrap products, I also produce a range of children's wedding favours - my Big Day Activity Sets - designed not only to look elegant on your Big Day, but, most importantly, to keep the little ones happy and entertained throughout the celebrations!
I'm a northern girl, with a love for paper, and all things handmade! I spend my days hand-printing beautiful things for my lovely customers...and dreaming of the day when I can own my own rescue dog!
Michael is a super-talented graphic designer and illustrator; he was integral in creating my branding, and also worked with me to design my Big Day Colouring Sets. He takes on freelance design work, through his small studio, MPJ Creative.
A Local Printing Firm
I work in collaboration with a small, local printing firm, in the production of a limited number of my wrapping papers. Where this is the case, I supply the printers with artwork created from my original hand printed designs, and it is from this artwork that all subsequent sheets are printed.

Frequently asked questions
ROLLED IN A POSTAL TUBE UPGRADE: All wrapping paper purchases (except for wrapping paper rolls) are sent folded as standard. If you wish your wrapping paper to be sent rolled, then purchase the 'Rolled in a Postal Tube' shipping upgrade at time of checkout (this option is not available for gift wrap sets).
TRACKED DELIVERY UPGRADE: All orders, except for wedding activity set orders, are sent via standard, untracked delivery. If you would like to add tracking, please purchase the 'Tracked Delivery' shipping upgrade at time of checkout.
UK ORDERS are sent via First Class delivery & should take 1 to 2 working days, from date of dispatch, to arrive with you. If you haven't received your order within 5 working days of dispatch, please contact me so we can resolve the issue.
NON UK ORDERS are sent via standard airmail. The Royal Mail estimates this to take 3 to 7 working days, depending on your location. However, I have found 1 to 2 weeks to be a more realistic expectation. Furthermore, during peak times, & dependant on hold ups such as customs checks & extreme weather, delivery can take even longer - up to 4 weeks in the most extreme cases. If you're concerned about the whereabouts of your order, please do contact me so we can resolve the issue - I'm always happy to help.
WEDDING ACTIVITY SETS are sent via tracked delivery. UK orders are sent by Royal Mail Signed For, and should arrive within 1 to 2 business days. International Orders are sent via Tracked Air Mail - this service should take 3 to 7 working days, however it is not time-definite, and can take up to 4 weeks (see Shipping Times above).
ALL OTHER ORDERS are sent via standard, untracked delivery, (unless the Tracked Shipping Upgrade is purchased at time of checkout). UK orders are sent by Royal Mail First Class Post. International orders are sent via Standard Airmail.
