Finished this today! This piece combines the story of Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid. c:
So glad I finished this. I redid the round coral piece three times because I couldn't decide what color I wanted, and then ended up using all the colors together because I liked the effect. x'D I can't wait to move on to my next project. @ w@;; So many paper cutting ideas~

This original papercut has been painstakingly cut from a single piece of black paper using a scalpel. It depicts Cinderella's carriage on the way to the castle, with quote "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes When You're Fast Asleep" at the bottom. This papercut is mounted in the front of an 8"x20" black box frame, creating a drop shadow on the white backing paper.
Can't think of a good title for this without dipping into awful puns...
A pop-up card made for a friend who's apparently a fan of fish. I had several wild ideas for a card, including one with a 3D Magikarp, but decided on a more serious design. I maintained a subtle reference to Pokemon, though most people wouldn't catch it unless they were a fan.
The mechanism for this card is very simple, but boggles the mind when first seen. The mechanism twists when opened, and is something you need to see firsthand to understand what I mean. (I've included a still shot of the card as it opens.) The card cover is heavily influenced by Sipho Mabona's amazing koi installations.
I decided to make a paper bead series but I will only show different size and shape paper beads and not how to get started. In this tutorial I show how to start but if it's not detailed enough for you, you can go search for better instructions online.
Here I show a technique to make a paper bead more round by using more than one strip.
