Papercutting Workshop at Café Mithi

On April 22, Saturday, Papel de Pinay held its first workshop for 2017. There were 5 participants (who were all very creative, I must say) in attendance. As usual, workshop kits were distributed, and everyone enjoyed the sumptuous meals and drinks served by Café Mithi. 

Each participant applied their learnings during the final activity, where they made and framed their own papercut designs. 


Pretty impressive works for first-timers, yeah? 

It’s always a wonderful feeling to be able to impart one’s skill to another. It’s definitely a crafternoon to remember.

“As we fell into the light, Our worlds collide”

My, how ancient was the last time I posted here? The past months had been crazy busy with work (and a bit of travel) on the side that I hadn’t used my trusty craft knife for weeks. This week is a different story, though, as I had to finish 3 commissions which were all needed urgently… but that would be for a different post.

So I was browsing through my phone’s photos and I saw this papercut which I made more than a month ago. I like the design (credits to Tina Tarnoff) because it silently tells the start of a love story, with cupid aiming his arrow at the couple.

This was to be given as a wedding anniversary present so I incorporated the name of the couple to customize it.

You must wonder where and how I got the title for this post. It’s a song which I like very much (just the intro itself is a beauty) by the band The Mostar Diving Club. Listen to the song here:
