When did you start getting into crafting, and what did you start with?Our names are Dmytro and Iuliia and we live in Ukraine. We love creativity and handmade things, because you can feel the inner world of the person who made them. We create hand-cut paper art silhouettes from a single sheet of paper with all of pieces interconnected. Our story begins from childhood, as children we took creative classes such as painting, drawing and paper craft. Though, growing up studying at a university we didn't pay proper attention to creativity, but it always lived in our hearts. Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend's birthday. It was when we realized how much creativity has an important place in our lives. After that, we took a serious interest in paper cutting art and started our paper cut silhouettes.
Do you work outside of your Etsy shop?
Now we dedicate all our time and energy to growth of our shop and ourselves.
How did you learn about Etsy?
When we realized we wanted to share our art with other people, we started to learn about different ways to sell it. The most popular and handmade oriented marketplace turned out to be Etsy. Etsy gives us opportunity to connect with people from different countries and sell our works.
When did you start your shop?
We took interest in this craft about a year ago, after that we decided to create our DreamPapercut shop on Etsy and share our art with other people.
Where does your inspiration for your items come from?
All our works are created with love and soul and are inspired by nature, life and people who enjoy our craft. For inspiration we go for a walk to the parks and forests to enjoy nature. We also like meet with our friends and spend time talking and having tea. It helps us to relax and get new energy to create original works.
Is there a certain item with a story behind it?
All paper cuts in our shop are different and unique. Each has their own story, which brought us a bit of joy and happy moments of our life.
Do you have advice for any shops just starting?
You should listen to your customers and use their advice and requests but do not lose your own way.
Do you have a Facebook fan page?
Any other info you would like to share?
Paper cutting is a very amazing process, at the beginning you just see a piece of paper and after spending several hours/days to cut, the paper becomes beautiful art work. Silhouettes for us are not just a sheet of paper. We put in our work- love, care, kindness, and happiness. We truly believe that people can feel the same emotions looking at our paper cuts.
