custom fingerprint papercuts

by Grace Bonney

it’s always so nice to hear from someone we’ve featured before about a talent we didn’t know they had. lori danelle, who turned in a beautiful pallet bed a few weeks ago, also cuts paper- like a pro.

lori sells these amazingly intricate custom fingerprint paper cuttings from her etsy shop. she explained that she, “finds it fascinating to look at the detail of something that is so unique to each person, we carry around with us always, leave all over the place, and yet never really look at”. these sweet paper cuts would make such a wonderful gift for new parents or a new couple. but, as lori points out, they’d also work as a super cool (and non-traditional) take on the idea of a family portrait. any way you slice it, these are such a cool idea. thanks so much to lori for sharing- you can check out (and order) her custom fingerprint paper cuts right here on etsy (prices range from $150-$350 for custom pieces).
