What started as a hobby in early 2015 has since grown into not just a business, but a love and passion for creating beautiful things out of fine, quality art paper.


I'm Ariana Shlansky (formerly Ariana Heintzen), the heart and hands behind Love & Paper. I specialize in paper flora to decorate weddings, other special events, storefronts, and homes. I design and construct flowers that are both "life sized" and "super sized," from 2 inches to 2 feet! (Yes, they have taken over my house.) I recently completed an 8'x8' paper flower wall/backdrop that was used in my own wedding and is ready to be rented out for events.


While paper flowers are my focus, I also make a variety of other paper goods to make one's home or special event more beautiful and unique, such as banners, garlands, party favors, signs, etc. I love receiving inquiries for custom projects, whether you need 20 "Elsa" crowns for your daughter's "Frozen" 5th birthday party or a purple, green, and gold garland for your bannister during Mardi Gras. I hope to create something for you soon!

Everything handmade with love .
