75 Photos Of Amazing Paper Art

Many people see art as something with many barriers to entry – maybe the materials are expensive, maybe you don’t have the space, or maybe you think it’s difficult, requiring many specialized tools. Sometimes that’s true, but the artists here have created incredible works using almost nothing but paper and scissors or knives.

Besides their stunning mastery of paper, these works grabbed our attention because of how they changed our perspective on paper. Many of us have some form of paper or another within hand’s reach most of the time, and yet we never think about the extraordinarily beautiful pieces of paper art that we could create with them if we ever took the time to try.

The next time you’re about to throw out a grocery receipt or gum wrapper, try to fold or cut it into something beautiful. Maybe you’ll get a flash of inspiration and create a work of art!
