About us

Michele and Helen started their craft business 17 years ago as two mums with a passion for craft. Initially we were primarily involved in the education market supplying schools, playgroups, nurseries and clubs with a variety of craft based materials. This led to us designing individual craft packs for a variety of clients in the education market and ultimately supplying bespoke activity packs to numerous clients including Tesco, B&Q and Pizza Express.  Our original business craftykits still supplies the major education catalogues in the UK and you will see a selection on this site.  

We have always believed in producing products here in the UK and actually manufacture all our card products in the South East of England. When looking through our products all items marked with our Union Jack Heart symbol denotes items that are designed and produced by us here in the UK.


The progression of our business from a variety of craft materials to mainly being designers and producers of cut out shapes for both the education and gift market has led us to launch cardcuts.co.uk in 2010 . At cardcuts we aim to provide a variety of products with a variety of uses.  Although the cake packaging side of our business has grown rapidly we also have many customers who use the same packaging for other items such as gifts, pet products, promotional packs etc.  With continued investment in machinery and tooling we are able to design for clients and ourselves. Whether you are an individual with a special event on the horizon, a gift maker looking for packaging you can personalise yourself or a wholesaler/retailer looking for bespoke packaging to provide your customers with something different and unique, we have the answers. 

Trade customers are always welcome - please contact us for information.  We do have distributors for some of our products in Europe and the USA.  The USA distributor can be found here:-  http.www.columbuswashboard.com/cakes-away
