Thanks so much for all of your orders, your support and patience has been so appreciated. I'm a one girl band and now in January 2021 the UK is going into a new lockdown. As all my products are mainly handmade, I'm making and posting your orders as fast as I can.
From now on, I only go to the post to deliver mail once a week every Friday.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
International orders usually take 2 weeks to arrive but please be patient during this time where there could be an extra week, please allow up to 3/4 weeks for orders to arrive. This is obviously out of my hands and I know postal workers around the world are working really hard to keep everything running!
The orders are sent as economy service (standard) and they don't have a tracking number. If you need this earlier or you want a tracking number for your package, please upgrade the shipping service when you place the order.

My Papercut Forest - Silvina's paper studio

Hola and welcome to my store. Cup of tea? Please do make yourself at home.

Origins

When I left Argentina in 2010 and moved to London with my one-year old, it felt like starting again. Invigorating. But scary! I knew almost no one and had to scrabble round for scraps of graphic design work just to make ends meet.

Once I’d built a bit of a network I started pushing towards what I really wanted to do – art, craft and teaching. The last few years have been a whirlwind. I’ve had three children, moved to Brighton, taken up gardening after a RHS course (now that I actually have a garden), studied for an MA in Art History, turned a shoddy old garage into a shiny new art studio… and started My Papercut Forest.

My Papercut Forest

My Papercut Forest is a playground for my imagination, a place to try out new ideas, artworks and designs. A place to be free from my own name (and from the kids!) Here, I create, make and sell a range of artworks including paper cut sculpture boxes, miniature paper domes, illustrations, prints, greeting cards, and loads of other unique objects. All designs are by me, and all items are handmade with love in Brighton, UK.

Forests are my favourite places in the world. I take the family for walks in the countryside as much as I can. Since a young age I’ve loved camping and being outdoors. My name “Silvina” in Latin means “from the woods”, so I wanted to incorporate that to the name. And the three trees in the My Papercut Forest logo symbolize my three children. They are the air to my lungs.

Personal art

I love working with my customers to create personalised pieces. It’s amazing to hear people’s life stories and help turn them into a beautiful piece of art, such as 3D paper sculptures of a first house, or the silhouette of a newly married couple placed in a box frame in front of a map that tells of their origins.

My Production

Every box or dome is beautifully hand crafted, making each one unique. I illustrate and design templates, which then I cut. I mainly use a laser-cutting machine for bulk cutting but sometimes cut by hand when the design requires it. I use high quality, recycled paper for my designs and wooden boxes that are hand made by a lovely man called David Parkinson who lives in Wales. I’m working to make my products as environmentally sound and sustainable as possible. My packaging is all reused and recycled from other retailers - not very fancy but I always try to make it look pretty, even if it’s been used before! Sustainability comes first.

Brighton Etsy Team

I'm proud to be the Captain of the Brighton Etsy Team since 2018.
We are a friendly, supportive, location based team of 2000+ Etsy sellers based in Brighton and East Sussex.. The Brighton Sellers’ Team is unique in the UK in that we hold regular meet ups, in Brighton. We share and exchange information to help team members improve their Etsy shops and increase sales and we do events in person and craft markets in the area. For more info please check our blog: https://brightonetsyteam.wordpress.com

If you're stuck for ideas, just let me know - I'd love to work with you to create the perfect gift.

My aim is to make people happy and the world just a little bit more beautiful.

I hope you enjoy browsing my shop,

Silvina
