Dear Marthe

I opened the paper cuts from my sister today and they are so beautiful. Thank you so much. You’re ridiculously talented. They are such a specialkeepsake that I will always treasure.

My friend K(…) absolutely loved X(…)’s too. Thank you so so much. xxx

Haai marthe,

We hebben de kaartjes en de papercut net ontvangen en wat zijn ze prachtig!
Als we de papercut hebben ingelijst stuur ik je meteen een foto.

Heel erg veel dank dat je dit zo ontzettend snel voor ons gemaakt hebt. Zelfs met een extra hertje en emblemen. Echt geweldig!!
Als je iets van een referentie ergens wilt hebben dan laat het maar weten.

Groetjes E(…)

Hi Marthe,
We just received the cards and the papercut and they are so beautiful!
Once we’ve framed the papercut, I’ll send you a picture of it right away.

Many thanks for your speedy process. Even with an extra fawn and stickers. Really great!
Just let me know if you’d like a testimonial somewhere.

Warm regards, E(…)

Hi Marthe!
J(…) loved the paper cut so much!  I gave it to him for Christmas and we’re excited about designing the mounting/frame for it.  Thanks again!  I’ll be sure to write a great review on etsy.

Hello Marthe!

Your beautiful paper cut has arrived safely! It’s absolutely wonderful, it’s perfect and just incredible. Your packaging was super too, thank you. (…)
We cannot wait to give T(…) and B(…) the paper cut when they return from honeymoon!

Thank you so much and we will definitely be in touch to arrange one for us!


Husband’s response when seeing the photos before shipment: That is pretty much the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen…

Hi Marthe,

I received the cutout today – so much faster than I would have thought! It’s so beautiful. I’m really thrilled with it, I think it will make such a beautiful gift.

I’ll send you a pic once I’ve gotten it framed.

WOWWWW! Its SO beautiful. I was planning on framing it to give to my husband – but you have done such MAGNIFICENT packaging job- so lovely that I am VERY torn.
It’s just so lovely, I am speechless. I just saw the joined hands – PERFECT.

THANK YOU again dankuwel
I will try and take a photo of it when I have it framed. I feel you have handed to me your well thought out, cared for, stressed over project to complete. I will do my best to see that it is properly finished.

You are so VERY talented, creative and patient.
You are a JOY to work with
THANK YOU again.

Hoi Marthe, het lampje stond op ons te wachten bij de buren toen we gisteren terug kwamen van vakantie. Het is prachtig; ik weet zeker dat ze het een super cadeau vindt! Dank voor de snelle service, groet, M(…)

Hi Marthe, the nightlight was waiting for us at the neighbours when we came back from our holiday yesterday. It is beautiful; I;m sure she will think this is a great gift! Thanks for the quick service, regards, M(…)

Wow wow wow! Wat super prachtig. We zijn er echt helemaal stil van. Wat een enorme kwaliteit!

Beste Marthe,
Hartstikke leuk kaartje! Leuk om te zien hoe je alles hebt verwerkt. We hadden eigenlijk allebei een grote giraffe in ons hoofd, maar dit is veel beter. Chapeaux!

Dear Marthe,
A very nice card! Nice to see how you incorporated all in the design. We originally had a big giraffe in mind, but this is much better.
Well done!

Hey Marthe,

N(…) zijn reactie meteen: “Wow…gaaf…nog veel mooier dan we het zelf hadden kunnen bedenken!”
Helemaal top dus!

Heel bijzonder hoe je het allemaal hebt weten te integreren. Echt super.

Hi Marthe,
N(…)’s first respons: “Wow… cool… much more beautiful than we could have ever come up with ourselves!”
So well done!
Very special how you managed to incorporate it all. Really great.

Marthe is an incredibly talented artist. I gave her the very difficult task of creating a very small multi layered diorama to include a vignette of our beloved great Dane Lulu. She took great care and a lot of time to make sure I would be pleased. I couldn’t be more so! Thank you Marthe

December 22, 2016
Very nice postcards and quick delivery

December 12, 2016
Yes, would love more photos of the work in progress. We like the unfinished look of the cuts when you’re half way through. We may even use them on the design.

Thank you – they’re beautiful. Can’t wait to see the real paper cuts too!

December 5, 2016
Hi Marthe,

I did.

Thank you so much, it looks even more wonderful in person! Yes, we were able to finish the card on time and greatly appreciate your quick turn around and beautiful design.

I hope you had a great weekend, and keep up the amazing work. We’ll be watching.

Good morning, Marthe

I wanted to let you know that K(…) and N(…) loved the papercut you made. They were especially impressed with the borders. I am hoping to visit them next month and am anxious to see where they place it in their very tiny apartment. Thank you again for making it so beautifully and for all your special attention!


October 12, 2016
Oh, my gosh! I LOVE IT! Thanks so much, Marthe—it’s exactly what I had hoped for!

October 10, 2016
Great customer service and the product arrived far earlier than I expected. The water bottle I received doesn’t fit the product description as the design is a mirror image of the one on the pictures, but the seller told me that shortly after receiving my order. She also offered to give me a 10% discount or to void the purchase if I didn’t want it, but I’ve actually found that I like it better this way.

October 1, 2016
The amazing level of communication & resulting personalisation of my order made it an absolute pleasure to work with Marthe. She is a very talented artist who went above & beyond to ensure that my piece arrived on time & looked exactly as promised, if not better. I highly recommend this artist to anyone wanting a very personal service.

August 26, 2016
It’s amazing! Really incredible how much more it comes to life when its a papercut – rather than just a drawing.

August 17, 2016
Such a beautiful item and an incredible personalized interaction with the artist. Upon receiving this gift, I felt I was opening a birthday/christmas present with all of the detailed personalization. You can really tell that love has been put into the work. This is why I love shopping from independent artists on Etsy and why I recommend you to do the same. You will not be disappointed with these gorgeous cups.

I contacted Marthe with a custom order request for a paper cut with a Van Gogh quote for my son’s nursery. From the start of our project through the delivery, Marthe was responsive, friendly and always helpful (especially during the design process). She gave great feedback & advice when I was uncertain about different aspects of the piece. The end result is beautiful and even better than I could have imagined. It came double wrapped in protective bubble wrap (and decorative tissue!), which was very much appreciated as my husband was carrying it home in his luggage. I cannot say enough good things about working with Marthe!

Happy new year!

T(…) loves the new artwork! I am also a massive fan and can not believe the detail you capture!! We can tell it looks exactly like lottie and not just a generic pug picture. It is fantastic!! Hope you have had a great Christmas and new year

Many thanks for all your effort and help!

December 15, 2015
Yay yay yay I got it!!!
Thanks again so much

Beautiful Christmas tree decorations – far more so than the photos! I bought some as a gift but wish I’d ordered a second set. Arrived beautifully gift-wrapped and safely packaged. Took about 2 weeks to arrive in the UK, no issues. Fab service and communication from seller. Thank you very much

November 3, 2015
Marthe did a fantastic job accommodating my numerous requests for customisation and delivered a stellar papercut. She was prompt, responsive, friendly, and kept me fully informed during her process. The papercut was amazing! Thanks Marthe.

September 29, 2015

Thank you!!!!!

We arrived home yesterday and your papercut
had arrived. We opened the package which
was extremely well wrapped . Then I started
crying. It is so beautiful !!!! I am going to
frame it in gold (for our golden child) with a
light green background. The background might
change when I am at the framing store.

Will send you a picture when it is completed.

Once again thank you so very much for
all you did. You are a true treasure and
very talented.

The best to you and your family.

This is a favorite quote of a new mom to whom I sent the papercut. She loved it beyond the stars.

Recently received this beautifull paper cut from MLena. It is amazing how detailed and accurately it is cut. It is a veraciously picture perfect. The paper cut was send, as ordered, in a frame and beautiful packed in ‘whispering paper’. Besides I also received some little surprise-presents with it. Since this order was intended to give as a present, I only needed to add my congratulations to it. I have added a picture of the placement I received from the happy owner. Thank you very much MLena!!
