V-Day 2014: From Me to H

A space-bunnies themed hand cut concertina card…

…with a sticker on the envelope from my 'I've Always Wanted To Show You' collection… 

… and finally, I made him a little felt raccoon filled with beans so he stands up… 

 … and I wrapped him up in brown paper with another self-made sticker… 

… and sent them off to Germany 

V-Day 2014 from H to me

Cutie Creature print

I'm thrilled to have a large print of these cute creatures which I've admired for a long time. It's by Köln-based freelance motion-designer André Kniepkamp. I met him in 2009 whilst visiting Köln. He's a dude. This print makes me smile every time I look at it – it's such a lovely, friendly cuddly hug! It reminds me of how I hugged my cat!

Space Bunnies

Finally, my epic January papercut is complete!
This piece took ~8 hours to cut out over two weeks. However, prior to cutting, I spent countless hours originating the idea and preparing a cutting template.

I even filmed myself cutting it and prepared a time-lapse documentation, which you can watch here:
