Paper Dreams

Ampersand Duck's Papercut

I’ve long admired these intricate yet sculptural papercuts from Ampersand Duck’s flickr album and wondered who made them. Neatorama tells me that it might be Peter Callesen.

I might have seen it in More Paperwork too. I’m quite sure that I saw the single-use wedding dress in there. I thought that that was pure genius, conceptually and aesthetically. It packs flat for delivery, features Miyakean pleats, and can be recycled when you’re done with it. What more can a designer bride ask for?

Oh. While I’m here, I might as well post this extraordinary papercut book as well.

The best papercuts are probably from China… maybe technically better…

But they’re mostly two-dimensional, and traditional in design. This is taking something seemingly old and boring, like papercut, one step further.

And I don’t know what’s “technically better” when it comes to papercuts. This looks pretty damn detailed to me.

Can this be our next crafty project? These will be very pretty lampshades!

We have such a long list of crafty + bakey projects pending that I’ve stopped tracking!

Plus this looks a little out of my league.
