Inception paper sculpture.
The local craft store had a sale on cardstock yesterday. I've never worked with cardstock before, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try it out. It worked just as I'd hoped for this project.

Free-standing Inception paper sculpture.


Thumbnail:






This one follows the "rules" of my other paper cuttings: It's all one continuous piece of paper (in fact, aside from several sections taken out of the base no paper has been removed at all, which is a first for me); no adhesives; cutting and folding only.

A few more angles in different lighting:











Thanks to the thickness of the paper it stands up quite well on its own. I'm pretty much won over by cardstock.








It stands just under 4" tall, with a 7.5" long luxury hotel corridor.

Cut from a 7.5" x 11" sheet.

I'm seriously in love with all of these, but I totally think this is my favorite. The tilt of the piece makes the whole thing just fantastically dynamic!

Thank you! It was a challenge figuring out how to get this to stand up properly, as I'd never done this kind of thing before, but it worked out really nicely.

Holy, that is just amazing! You actually used the same piece of paper for arthur as the walls, and created that tilt of the piece! Man, this is just beautifully awesome

Thank you!

The tilt actually didn't work properly the way I originally designed it, and I had a sinking feeling I'd have to scrap it and start over. But I'd already finished cutting most of the entire thing by then, including Arthur, and I couldn't just give that up. I managed to pull it out of the fire with a last-minute re-think that luckily worked!

Oh, I wanted to tell you that you're amazing, but scrolling over the comments made me feel all unoriginal... THIS IS PRETTY GOOD!

That's brilliant! You captured the feel of that scene perfectly! Well done!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: November 15th, 2010 06:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's exactly what I was aiming for, and in fact after I finished cutting my original design I went back and made a few improvements to the hallway details. So thank you!

Absolutely incredible. These just get better and better. I'm in awe...

Thank you! Doing this kind of paper art is still very new to me so I keep coming up with more ideas I want to try out...if I can find the time :-)

This is so beautiful. Seriously. I really can't imagine how you created all of that from one piece of paper. Talent! And hard work figuring out how it had to be made!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: November 15th, 2010 11:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's been great fun experimenting with this type of paper-cutting, and I'm still new to it so thank you for your comments! Doing it all as a single piece of paper is just an extra little challenge to myself :-)

... it is so pretty! omg I WANT but i think you want it more LOL omg i feel so untalented and worthless now DDDDD8
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: November 16th, 2010 12:14 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! But none of that "worthless" stuff now, everyone does their own cool things :-)

I almost expect the box to really tumble down and start moving!
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: November 16th, 2010 12:30 am (UTC) (Link)
Hahaha, well before I fixed the base (my original idea for it didn't work) that's what it would do from time to time :-)
spottedzebra From: spottedzebra Date: November 15th, 2010 08:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very cool! The fact that it's all one piece of paper amazes me!
Great movie also ^_^
ldhenson From: ldhenson Date: November 16th, 2010 12:38 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! I love seeing how much I can get out of a single piece of paper...it makes me think a little harder about each project.

"Juliana," Michael Nesmith
In the morning
When the sun is a lonely light
just over the hill
When the world is awake
and yet all things are still
My thoughts keep returning to you
as they always will

In the morning
I am watching and waiting
to see the sun shine
And I'm feeling your presence
so sweet on my mind
For I know you're the love and the light
of my life for all time

Juliana
How your name brings me awake
like the first light of dawn
Juliana
How it comes to the heart
like the wind from the wings of a song
Juliana
You're my sweet heart's desire
You're the face of a dream I have drawn

In the evening
With the sweet orange blossoms
caressing the air
I stare at the sky
and I see your face there
With the moon in your eyes
and the indigo night in your hair
