Cut, Folded, and Glued!
Don’t be fooled by the basic sheet of paper. It can be formed and molded into the most extraordinary, meticulous pieces of art. Paper cutting artists are some of the most patient that I know. I have some experience working with paper and creating art books, being a graphic designer. I am fierce with an Exacto blade. But after seeing these pieces by various artists, I should just surrender, lay down my blade at their feet, and pick up this This is For You (a book that we carry!) in order to simply enjoy and be awed by the masters of the trade.
Keep looking after the fold for some more inspiring pieces. These ain’t no paper cranes!…

Peter Callesen, with the touch of Midas can turn a flat sheet of plain ol’ copy paper into a castle. A CASTLE! Shoot@! Many of his works are almost life-size, including a room and staircase entirely constructed of paper.

Being the featured artist on the Summer ’09 issue of Fiberarts Magazine can really get you noticed. And for good reason! Scott Fife creates these deeply elegant and interesting sculptures from cardboard, glue, and screws. By the way, that dog is gigantic.

Lastly, I happened upon this storefront display at Macy’s in NYC a month ago and felt the need to snap away. I later found out that Eloise Corr Danch is the mastermind behind these intricate and beautiful flower layouts. The display was very eye-catching.
I hope you enjoyed! Please share if you have any other interesting pieces of paper art to include in this list, or if you have done any work yourself. We would love to see and be inspired!
