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?
