Featured VT Etsy Seller: EmerlyeArtsKirigami

When I was little, I spent a lot of my time cutting paper into simple snowflakes, paper dolls, and long, drapey things that I hung from my bedroom ceiling, but never even imagined it was possible to achieve the level of detail and precision that Cynthia of EmerlyeArtsKirigami creates in her kirigami (paper that is both folded and cut) paper art. Her work is simply amazing.

As a fellow creator of hyper-detailed art, I was immediately drawn to Cynthia's work. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and cut by hand, intricate and delicate, some completely abstract, others with critters or people worked into the design. Cynthia also creates amazing 3d cards, many that pop up or unfold several times to reveal the final creation.

See more of Cynthia's gorgeous kirigami art at her Etsy shop, or visit her website:
