Photography: Hands Love Papers

It's always exciting to start a new hobby. Some of us may haven taken up coloring or calligraphy, while there are those who prefer challenging ones like papercutting. During last weekend's Real Living Space, Ebony Paguia of Hands Love Papers gave an informative talk on the art of papercutting.

If you still can't decide on what activity to do to pass the time, you can try your hand at papercutting! Here are three reasons why this art is a must-do:

You can create your own design

If you want to add a personalized touch to your space, you can come up with your own unique design for your project. Try looking for inspiration online or you can actually use your favorite quotes or lyrics. If you're feeling extra creaitive, you can even work with a picturesque landscape.

You can use it as décor at home

Once you’re done with your artwork, you can have it framed and displayed at home! You may choose to display it in the living area for guests to see or in your bedroom.

The materials are not expensive

Another good thing about papercutting? It's not an expensive hobby! Materials like a cutting mat, tracing paper, and a hobby knife are within your budget. If you're interested to get a beginner's starter pack, Ebony has a package worth P250—complete with the basic tools that you would need.
