paper cutting stained glass

Sam is currently working on a paper church. One of the defining features of a church is its stained glass. Using a coloured, wax-like paper, Sam designed and cut out stained miniature windows. Check them out below. A picture of the church will be uploaded once it has been completed.

Detailing Origami Houses

For the project I'm doing on hitRECord, I have been asked to do some detailing on the 3D houses I've been making. I draw the bricks on the roofs with sharpie and draw the windows on card stock and then cut them out with a pen knife.

I really love creating miniature figures and working with fine detail.

For the first & second houses, I used green wrapped wires and hand cut mini leaves out of green textured paper.

For the second house, I spent 4 1/2 hours cutting tiny leaves and then pasted them one by one in a layering fashion.

I am very happy with how all three turned out ^____^ Feel free to let me know what you think :D
