Butterflys heart by daegfire Butterflys heart by daegfire
This was a christmas gift for my cousin Ceri.
It shows a butterfly flying on birds wings. It took a while to design, and is the first paper cut that i have designed before cutting, using my new Ipad.
I put a lot of thinking in to this design, and it holds much meaning for both me and Ceri.

Thank you so much everyone. Espeshaly digikijo.deviantart.com/ and talty.deviantart.com/ for submitting and featuring my work!
I'm so happy about getting a DD :D

so a really sharp xacto knife?

Most of the time i find xacto kifes arn't sharp enough, and dull really quickly.
I use 10A Swann morton surgical blades and a 3G S/S handle. on average i go though between 5 and 8 blades per paper cut, although this depends on its size and complexity. This image used 6 blades.

Haha sadly not this one, its a very personal peace of artwork made as a gift for the cousin.
However I do have plans to put up a tutorial on DA to create a different design. And will soon be selling templates on etsy.

This is gorgeous, and your other work is quite impressive as well. Do you have any information on how you make these? It looks like laser-cut (?) but what sort of mchine is involved?
Reply
:icondaegfire:
daegfire Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
This one is hand cut, I do use laser cutting, but not to often. It's a great machine, but I enjoy cutting by hand more. Feels more rewarding and i find it pretty relaxing.
I've had a lot of questions about my working process after getting the DD, so I'm planning to do a walk through or tutorial soon.

Thank you! It would be interesting to see how you do it... whenever I cut a lot of paper for whatever sort of project, my fingers end up hurting quite a bit... maybe I hold the x-acto/ scissors too hard. :P

:icondaegfire:
daegfire Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
If I don't do much cutting for a couple of days I find my fingers hurt too. But doing it a lot you end up with hard skin where you hold the knife, so it doesn't really hurt. Although over the years I've cut myself a lot ! Haha.

This was cut from red card (I forget the weight) that was sold as large scrap booking paper. Not done much cutting with origami paper, I like something slightly thicker. Less chance of thing ripping haha.
