Give this amazing Japanese artist some paper and a pair of scissors and she'll be sure to create something unbelievably intricate and fragile. Take a look at some of her lovely cut-outs after the jump!
It’s amazing what Paris-based Japanese artist Hina Aoyama can create with paper, a pair of scissors, concentration, patience, and attention to detail: beautifully intricate and skillfully-cut masterpieces ranging from dainty butterflies to fine cursive text. However, they should be handled with care, as they could be easily destroyed with a crush of the hand. Let’s take a look at some of them:
Each fragile work of art takes her hours or sometimes months to make, but Aoyama says she finds the super meticulous process a fun way to relieve stress. On her creative process, the amazing artist says, "I don’t follow traditional, but I am trying to create a mixture of the traditional and modern styles and to produce my own world through this super fine, lacy-paper-cuttings technique.”

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
