When A Papercut Is A GOOD Thing . . .

{ The Artists }

Our names are Dmytro and Iuliia and we live in Ukraine. We love creativity and handmade things, because looking at them you can feel the inner world of the person who made them. We are fond of different kinds of sports, like traveling and try ourselves in painting. This year we have graduated from the economic university and now dedicate all our time and energy to grow in paper cutting and refine our shop. Our story begins from the childhood, when being children we visited creative classes such as painting, drawing and paper craft. Growing up and studying at university we didn't pay proper attention to creativity, but it always lived in our hearts.

{ The Art }

We are creating hand-cut paper silhouettes from a single sheet of paper and all of pieces are interconnected. Paper cutting is very amazing process, when at the beginning you just see a piece of paper and after spending several hours/days to cut, paper becomes a beautiful art work. Silhouettes for us are not just a
sheet of paper. We put in our works a piece of love, care, kindness, happiness and truly believe that people can feel the same emotions
looking at our paper cuts.

All our works are made with love & soul & are inspired by nature, life and people who like our works. To get inspiration we go for a walk to the parks, forests to enjoy the nature. Also we like meet with our friends and spend time talking and having tea. It helps us to relax and get new energy to create original works. We want to say through our art that world is beautiful, amazing and wonderful. Every second you can feel its perfection. There are main eternal values in the world like nature, love, help, kindness, care that everyone should spread, share and protect to live in harmony with yourself, other people and the whole world.

Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend’s birthday. It was the first realized step how much creativity occupies an important place in our lives. After that, we took interest in paper cutting art & started creating paper cut silhouettes. We decided to create our DreamPapercut shop on Etsy and share our art with other people. When we thought of the name of our shop, we wanted it to be simple and memorable, but the same way describes what
we are making, so we named it DreamPapercut. “Dream” because we were dreaming to do what we like. “Papercut” means what we like to do.
Our shops:
DreamPapercut (Etsy), DreamPapercut (Zibbet)
DreamPapercut (Shoply), DreamPapercut (CraftIsArt), DreamPapercut (Dawanda)

{ The Cat }

We have a cat called Lisa. Despite her 14 years old, she is so cute & likes playing with us. She always meets us when we come home. She is really a truly friend & follow us wherever we are at home. She is very curious & likes to watch the papercutting process. We love Lisa so much and consider her as a member of our team.


Thank you, Dymtro & Iuliia! You are both beautiful people & I am just delighted that you shared your story here.
