Tiny Matchbooks Set the Stage for Miniature Cut Paper Stories


Miniature Cut Paper Art

If you’ve read Brown Paper Bag for a while, you already know that I’m a big fan of 100 day projects. I love the ded­i­ca­tion that comes with it, as well as the cre­ative mag­ic that can hap­pen when you explore a sin­gle top­ic in so many ways. Over the next two days, I’ll share a cou­ple of 100 day projects that have recent­ly caught my eye.

The first one is by Cheryl Teo, aka LULO. She’s cur­rent­ly work­ing on #100­daysof­pa­per­match­box­es, which fea­tures a array of minia­ture cut paper scenes. If that sounds too open-end­ed, nev­er fear—she’s giv­en her­self an inter­est­ing con­straint; each com­po­si­tion sits on a match­book-sized plat­form in a sim­i­lar­ly vibrant col­or palette. Most of the small sculp­tures fea­ture a slice of life that’s depict­ed a in a low-poly style. They’re a feast for the eyes and impres­sive in their con­struc­tion.

Cheryl is on day 30 of #100­daysof­pa­per­match­box­es, so there’s still time to fol­low her on Insta­gram and watch the series devel­op. For more of her work, check out the LULO Etsy shop.

Cheryl Teo is working on a 100 day project featuring miniature cut paper scenes. Each is a vibrant sculpture set on a stage that’s the size of a matchbook.
