The Wound
Inner Thread.


You are now in papercutland, a place entirely dedicated to the world of papercutting, papercuts, Scherenschnitte and everything related to this fascinating craft. Now I invite you to unbuckle your sit belt and feel free to explore my little paper planet where you will see many of my new creations, made with lots of love and lots of #11 X-Acto blades :) 

Here I will keep you updated on the new papercut pieces that I am creating, but I also decided to create this blog within my main blog in order to gather as much information as possible about this craft. I would love this space to grow little by little as much as I would love the therapeutic power of papercutting to reach you. I know that if you try this amazing art form you will feel that you have entered a magic world. 

 Notice how I have listed all kinds of links on the sidebars of this blog for you to get familiar with this wonderful craft. These links include: *A list of papercut artists *Tutorials *Videos *Articles *Supplies *Wikipedia definitions *Organizations *Interesting *Etsy stores *Papercut books If you can hold a pair of scissors or a knife in your hand then you should give papercutting a try. The process of creating a papercut piece is a wonderful way to practice and master the art of patience. 

You know how sometimes we just want things to get done immediately, instantly, and we get frustrated with the very idea of having to wait for things to happen but the reality is that in life everything happens gradually. I can tell you that by cutting out the many little pieces of paper in an intricate design I get to challenge myself to be patient and to keep going one cut at a time until the work is finished. 

This process is something that I bring to my daily life. With all the demands from my family and work I have learned that I just need to be patient and do one thing at a time. Finishing a new papercut is such a rewarding experience, as rewarding as seeing my children grow and have progress everyday. Papercutting has found a very special corner in my heart and through this blog I am going to share my love for this wonderful and healing art form with you. 

I am looking forward to all our paper adventures, I invite you to join me in this journey. Thank you so much for being here right now!
