Fabric kits by Wilsons on etsy

Here is another fine example of what one can do with your own designed and printed fabric.  Check out their shop on etsy as well as stop by Spoonflower and play around with your own designing.

Paper Sparrow fabric printed at Spoonflower

As many of you know there is a great online service where you can print and design your own fabric.  Mine is currently being shipped to me, I cannot wait.  I thought it would be fun to compile a group of posts that show many amazing designers and the items they made.  This is from Paper Sparrow on Etsy and can be purchased for a mere $20.  You should check out the site, especially if you heart birds like so many of us do.

Kako Ueda

One last paper cut for this series of posts, Kako Ueda.  Her work is so breathlessly intricate, which I admire.  I hope to see one of the delicate and complex pieces in person some day.  Enjoy and check out her website.

Papercut Diecut

This beautiful papercut can be found on Etsy.  For a mere $20 it is amazing that all the work is hand done.  Despite the shop name, all of the papercuts are done by hand and there is an amazing variety.  A collection of beauty awaiting us all.

Paper rings

I am a big fan of the cut out, taking the flat and making it dimensional.  Here we have a splendid use of the paper cut - to dress the finger.  Check out more of TT:NT designs, and also check out Paper Crave, a fantastic site devoted to what we hold dear, paper.

Aoyama Hina - delicate text

This body of work is breath taking and mind boggling.  I continually am amazed at those who partake in this labor intensive art of drawing with a knife.  If you would like to see more of Aoyama Hina's work check this story out in Paper Forest.

Another Fun Summer project - More papercut crafts to come

Sweet and simple this Japanese how to book takes you through the steps of how to do kirigami as well as other papercuts.  I am a huge fan of papercuts, as many of you know, and thought you might want to add this book to your list - because I sure do.
