Tulip Fairy by Lamorien Tulip Fairy by Lamorien
oh hey, I learned that origami paper is REAAAALLY good for cutting stuff out. So this was my first attempt at using origami paper to do my cutouts. This size, I think it's about 6"x6", I've got 98 more pieces in as many different colors. If you're interested in having a custom cutout, let me know. They're $30 through the end of September, after that they go back to $35. Let me know!!

Just did a wee cutout of a faerie with a tulip on fuchsia paper. Like I said, getting to know the paper and whatnot. I'm quite happy with how this turned out. :)

If you'd like to buy this piece you can do so here: [link]

What do you use to cut the paper with? It's really pretty, by the way!

Thank you! I just use a regular #11 X-Acto blade and a self-healing mat. The origami paper makes it a lot easier. :)

I'm starting out in paper cutting, so I'm trying to find what works best :) I use an x-acto knife too and usually card stock or silhouette paper (:

hm i don't know anything about silhouette paper. If you look online they make all sorts of different shapes and sizes of blades, and finding a good, sturdy but thin paper I think is really important. I honestly am not that familiar with paper cutting products; I'm sort of just starting out myself.

A Disney artist I met in Magic Kingdom suggested the silhouette paper because that's what she uses XD it's super thin and almost like origami paper
You're really great at it!

I looked it up and yeah I'm right there with ya XD

When you so side profiles of people, do you cut it out just looking at a ref, or do you draw it out first?

I draw it out backwards on the back side of the paper so it's facing forwards when I'm done cutting it out (an easy way to do that is to reverse the reference photo on the computer and then just copy that onto the back of your paper.)
