Josie Kyriacou, who works as a designer in London, and runs Etsy shop Kyri Design by night, took the Paper & Party award at the ceremony known as the Etsies with her illustrated wedding guest placecards.

The cards are printed on silkweave textured paper and can also be used as wedding favours.

Etsy sells handmade craft items online and celebrity judge Drew Barrymore and trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson selected Josie from tens of thousands of entries.

Josie said: “It’s great being able to work within a trusted community which has so many amazing customers.

“I hope this product will put smiles on faces, not only is it a beautiful gift for guests to take home, it also works as an icebreaker and talking point on tables who are unfamiliar with one and other.”
