As a kid I always loved the illustrations in my Grimm’s Fairy Tales books, and these paper cuttings by Elsa Mora look like those illustrations in color and come to life. Her work explores many different styles, from cute, flat characters to organic, 3-dimensional shapes. While some of her cuts are meant to create forms, other cuts are simple slits in the paper that create textures. She also creates paper rings, and their beauty is in their size: the level of detail and the cleanliness of the cuts while being so tiny really shows off her craftsmanship. See more of these fun cuts here.
