Shannon Silverman

Owner/Lead Designer

Shannon Silverman is the principal designer for The Paper Crate.

It is known for its card making kits, classes, and workshops. We have a great supply of Arts and Crafts items and gifts.

She created The Paper Crate in 2009 in New York City, where she handmade and sold her creations at a craft and artisan bazaar on Mulberry Street in SoHo. 

During that time she expanded to making her items available on Etsy with popular items such as handmade recipe boxes and keepsake boxes.

She continued operating The Paper Crate after relocating to the St Louis area where she wanted to share her knowledge of custom card making to others by offering card classes.
