15 Papercut Art Pieces for Your Walls

Papercut art brings a little more dimension to your wall art. Without any paint or pigments at all, artists use only paper and X-acto knives to carve out super intricate layers and landscapes that will remind you of pop-up books. If you’re looking for a new piece of wall art (or a new DIY skill), papercut art is worth exploring. Here are 15 pieces from some of our favorite paper cutting artists in the game.

1. Fionna and Cake ($20): Artist Kevin Jay Stanton not only brought this dynamic duo to life in paper, but he put them on a slab of wood. Let the adventuring begin!

2. Octopus Adventure ($300): Amidst layers of waves comes a fantastic octopus about to rival a ship. Such an epic adventure was dreamt up by Jared Andrew Schorr.

3. Snowflake Necklaces ($36): These snowflake pendants are an absolutely stunning handmade gift option that go above and beyond what you could find in any gemstone. Artist Sarah Trumbauer also offers cards and prints in her Etsy shop.

4. Lady in Red Print ($52): How beautiful are those paper feathers? We think we’ll make try making a whole framed picture of those with inspiration from Sarah Dennis.

12. Chesapeake Bay Topography Map ($40): We absolutely love this idea. Marnie Karger makes paper topography maps of various shorelines, and they’d be perfect for a place you want to remember.
