Chris & Ellie’s (+baby) Home

I am often asked about how do I make my papercuts, whether I use cutting machine or a lasercutter.. So this video is trying to show my cutting process and how all of it is cut out by hand:

To make the video I used my friend’s camera which was set to take a photo every 60 seconds. This stop-frame animation video sums up more than 6 hours of cutting. (For the next video I am hoping to get a headstrap for the camera, so you can see more detail being slowly revealed as I cut off the little pieces of paper..)

About the story:
This was a present from Andrew and me to our very good friends Chris and Ellie and their new beautiful baby. We had decided on making their lovely home into a paper story a while back; in fact I had drew the first sketch before last summer when they took us in to stay with them for over a month, when our place was a complete construction site, and put up with us stressing out about it.

Waiting for over year to make the paper cut turned out for the better as now there was a new beautiful baby to include in the story.
