Laser Cut Pop Up Kirigami Cards of Landmarks from New York, Paris and London

Laser Cut Pop Up Kirigami Cards of Landmarks from London - Tower Bridge

With over a decade of experience working as a graphic designer in leading branding agencies around the world, London based artist Judy Robinson decided to create something purely for the love of creating. With her passion for papercraft and a love of sophisticated minimalist design Paper Tango was born. Little did she know that her pop-up creations made in her small bedroom in North London would, through the encouragement of family and friends, grow into an international creative business. These kirigami pop-up cards are of landmarks from New York, Paris and London, which have been intricately laser cut and individually hand folded and trimmed. The card is A4 size and made from premium Italian paper and UK paper stocks. Be sure to check out the entire collection on Paper Tango.

Each Horrorgami is sold as a limited edition of 13, how fitting, for purchase on his site here. Stay tuned, the series won't be complete until there are 13 total.



Just in time for Halloween, horror-film enthusiast Marc Hagan-Guirey has made these papercut versions of famous haunted houses, in a series he calls Horrorgami. He’s already created four houses from horror films and T.V. shows: The Shining, The Amityville Horror, The Exorcist, and The Addams Family. He plans to make 13 houses total and display them in an exhibition in London. This specific technique is called kirigami, where the piece is both cut and folded to make the desired piece.

Originally The Ice Book was created as a demonstration model to get funding for making a larger scale production, but ultimately it has now transformed into a standalone sensation.
