Paper + petal
Paper + Petal is a gift-giving service for sending specially-designed care packages to friends and loved ones in the mail. All gifts included in these “giftable boxes” are created by local makers, providing a platform for supporting our community of creatives. Our mission is to provide a thoughtful, personal and affordable option for giving. All giftable boxes include a greeting card with a handwritten message inside, a potted plant, an edible treat and other small gifts that relate to the given theme, which span from topics like Happy Birthday to Hygge.
Hailing from the teeny town of Granville, Caitlin moved to Cincy in 2014 to be with her boo. While her background is in Spanish and Linguistics, her deep love of mildly inappropriate greeting cards has led her to become the Paper half of the P+P business equation. She met Kelsey through the local non-profit scene, and they’ve been as tight as a high-ponytail ever since. Cait lives in Clifton with her college-sweetheart (Chris), their stuffed owl (Hoot), and their door spider (Big Fatty the Gatekeeper).
A Cincy transplant from the Hocking Hills, Kelsey attended OU with a focus in Art History and Italian Studies. She’s worked for 5 years at local non profits in contemporary art and art education. Picking up floral design gigs on the side and obsessing over the Monstera Deliciosa, she’s definitely the Petal in P+P. She first fell in friend-love with Cait after witnessing Cait’s Stevie Nicks impression. Kelsey lives in Over-the-Rhine with her tortoise, Murphy Brown, and 27 plants (hold on to your butts- that number will likely grow).
