Let me show you how to make a paper cutting art, step by step.
1. Laptop/PC/Computer, to create the image you would like to cut. It can simply be a name which you can create with Microsoft Office Word, or graphical image which I usually make with Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Photoshop, but Corel Draw, Freehand will do.
2. Paper, paper here means carton, as thick as common magazine you might have in your house, 250-330 gsm. Choose your favorite color, texture, or finishing (glittery, shimmer, pearly, embossed with pattern).
3. Printer, to print the image with thin black ink, you don’t need to print it in solid black because this is just a guideline of cutting.
4. Cutter, buy any standard cutter you can find in bookstore with refill, it doesn’t have to be cutter pen.
Every artwork, I design them first in computer, because I need to get the approval from clients first before do the paper cutting. After sending some alternatives of designs, client will choose which design and sometimes I need to do some revision to make it perfect for my clients.
After client approve a design, then I will print it with gray color to be the guideline of cutting.
Grab a unused magazine or big carton to be your cutting mat. Mat should be bigger than your paper cutting. Do not use glass or wood or ceramic to be a cutting mat, it will make your cutter blade easily blunt.
After finished cutting, put it in a nice double glass frame and it is ready!
Give it to your special one, a perfect gift for any occasions
