born out of the desire to create a beautiful cracker that was zero waste
Laura Likes is a Cornish stationery company creating eco-friendly paper products inspired by nature. I, Laura, am a flower-obsessive! And spend a large proportion of the year creating bespoke floral wedding stationery for couples nationwide and beyond. I offer an extensive range of botanical designs which not only feature flowers but can also grow into flowers, when printed on the handmade wildflower seed paper that I use and love. In addition to brides and grooms, I also work with some wonderful independent businesses across Cornwall and beyond creating branded stationery and packaging, and I was thrilled to supply stationery for the G7 summit at Carbis Bay this year. Blooming Crackers were born at the end of 2020 - a testing year for the wedding industry - luxury Christmas crackers with seed packet gifts offered a perfect sideline and a unique product to fit within my range of sustainable, nature-led goods.
Born out of the desire to create a beautiful cracker that was zero waste - Laura Likes now offers Blooming Crackers in two different colour ways - choose from Midnight Blue with gold ribbon or the original Winter Forest with green ribbon to bring your Christmas table to life.
Sustainability & Quality
Blooming Crackers, I believe, have the best eco-credentials of any paper cracker out there! The watercolour illustrations of festive foliage are printed on to a premium 100% recycled card, and are tied up with paper ribbon - thus making the whole cracker entirely recyclable. Each cracker contains a joke (printed on recycled paper), a tissue paper hat and and a packet of seeds packaged in biodegradable vellum. The seeds are packaged and the crackers are rolled in-house meaning that a close eye is kept on quality and every box is dispatched in picture perfect condition, in plastic free packaging of course.
I am proud to say that Laura Likes is carbon positive! Ecologi have calculated the carbon footprint of the business and not only plant trees in my name every month, but also fund world-leading climate change solutions to, more than, offset my impact.
