Paper magic....

Paper cuts hurt my brain. So intricate, so detailed, so utterly incomprehensible to a girl who struggles with cutting straight lines.

These paper cuts by Hina Aoyama are just unbelievable. Literally. I look at my hands and I find it completely impossible to believe that someone made these things of beauty with nothing but a bit of paper, their hands and a tiny little pair of scissors. Me and my big ole sausage fingers are going off to cry in a corner, embarassed by our lack of grace and skill....

  2. Someone does that by hand??? OMG...I can hardly believe it, the patience and concentration it must take! Does it make you feel any better that I to have trouble cutting in a straight line, and would never be able do attempt this either? Absolutely beautiful!
