Circle of Life Papercut Ketubah
The Circle of Life Ketubah With its vivacious paper cut design, the Circle of Life ketubah brims with organic movement. Fragile blue petals, encircling the text, join together to create a stylized flower, while delicate bushes extend outward in a burst of growth.

An outer band of decorative motifs, enhanced with 24- karat gold leaf, enclose the composition and give the ketubah a doily-like effect. The Circle of Life is a fanciful interpretation of the rhythmic flow of life's diverse elements that move with continual change only to flow together into an overall and unified pattern.See This Ketubah

Greenwood Papercut Ketubah
The visual metaphor of the coming together of the bride and groom and the fusion of their separate lives becoming one is particularly poignant in the Greenwood ketubah. The two trees flanking the ketubah's text are separate entities, and yet, their roots grow towards each other, meet and begin to intertwine.
Above, their branches and leaves spread out and unite to create a canopy; a bridge in the sky with the words from Song of Songs: I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine. Below, a shelter is formed by the foliage above, providing a place where two deer may find refuge and seek repose This simple image encapsulates the hopes and aspirations of the new couple, who come to each other as individuals, making a bond that strengthens one another, as they grow while sharing their life together.

The Peacock Papercut Ketubah – Migzeret Illusion
Central to this exquisite ketubah are two peacocks, shyly looking outwards, while resting under a pomegranate tree. Their feathers, billowing down like water flowing in a stream, surround the text while creating a decorative border.
