Paper Cuts

Every paper cut is individually hand formed starting with a pencil sketch to create a template then hand cut using a craft knife and scissors. They are not created using a laser, or any machine. Making them by hand is a time consuming craft but it is also calming and allows for each one to be individually unique. Each one can take anywhere between an hour to several hours, depending on the size, material used, (tissue paper, rice paper, card stock or paper) and the complexity of the design.

Because paper cuts are extremely delicate in nature, they are prone to tearing very easily. In fact, the tissue will stick to your fingers just from the natural oils and moisture that is naturally present on your fingers and hands. Since humidity and sunlight will ruin and fade the delicate paper cut it is recommended not to display paper cuts in a bathroom or kitchen where heat and humidity will adversely affect the wooden frame and paper itself, nor place them in an area where it will be exposed to direct sunlight.

Each of my paper cuts come either framed and matted or framed between two pieces of glass or acrylic glazing (a panel) as shown below. What you see below are the original framed paper cuts and all of them are for sale.

The large paper cuts will have an acrylic glazing (or panel) instead of glass, as large pieces of glass are extremely heavy in large frames.

For bulk orders email me at and tell me which ones you want and how many you need. Or call me with your order at: (248) 707-4117.

Turn around time from placing the order to mailing out your paper cut takes about 5-6 days, bulk orders will take more time to create.

Some of the photos are taken out of the frame or with the glass or glazing removed to eliminate any glare.
