This is a Japanese paper cutting style that I have been enjoying as of late. Cutting out images and layering them to turn a two dimensional image into a more energetic and alive 3D piece of art.
This is a style that I created myself. I call it “Shohin Kirigami” which loosely translates to Small Goods Paper Cutting. I came up with the idea while playing cards with my family. They’re cute little collectibles.
People occasionally ask me to create custom pieces for them using their photos or ideas. This one was for my sister, in memory of her recently departed dog Rosie. The box frame was large enought for her to place Rosies’ dog tags in there as well. It was a nice homage to a loved family member.

Kirigami is a variation of Origami that includes cutting of the paper, rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with Origami. With my version of Kirigami, I use images cut into layers to create a 3D effect on the finished product.
