From my riverside papercut studio and shop in picturesque Wimborne in Dorset, you'll find my wielding my scalpels creating beautiful artwork to order
Hello, I’m Kyleigh and I have always had a bit of a head for lyrics, a love of typography and a nerdy fixation for cutting intricate things with a scalpel.
When I designed and hand cut my first ever papercut back in 2010 it was a fusion made in my personal heaven and Kyleigh’s Papercuts was born.
I have been teaching paper cutting workshops to wonderful groups of scalpel-loving folk from all over the country for over 5 years and have been lucky enough to teach sold-out papercutting workshops at Kirstie Allsopp's Handmade Fair at both Hampton Court and Bowood House where the events saw me teaching 100 people at once, over each of the three-day events.
I have also taught at CarFest South and the Larmer Tree Festivals as well as teaching on behalf of Notonthehighstreet at their events at Stylist Live, Open Door at Spitalfields and Fearne Cotton's Happy Place Festival.
If you have a special commission in mind, do get in touch - I’d love to hear from you!
A long graphic design and typography career means that every one of Kyleigh's designs are all immaculately, impeccably designed with huge attention to detail
It starts with an idea, a scribble in a sketch book, then I sit at my mac to design. This process can take a while, I have to make sure the paper doesn't fall to pieces when I cut it out. Then I'll print my template and set to work cutting.
I use G.F Smith paper between 120 and 135gsm and two trusty scalpels. A Swann-Moreton 3 handle with 10A blade and a Fiskars fingertip swivel scalpel. Then all I need is a good podcast or audio book, a lovely cup of tea and I'll get cutting.
I give people a choice to have their unique design handcut by me or the more cost effective machine cut version. Machine cut papercuts look the same (no lasercutting here!) and are less time consuming which makes for a cheaper option for those on tighter budgets that still want the entirely unique design created just for them.
If you need your papercut by a specific date in the future, please let me know at time of ordering so I can make sure it gets to you in time for the big day (bearing in mind my current lead times).
Likewise if you need it in a hurry, please choose Express Delivery at the checkout.
For bespoke commissions, I am available at every step of the order. I am happy to discuss embellishment ideas you may have, and can send a JPG of the design prior to cutting to make sure you're completely happy with the design before it gets cut and framed.
For all other enquiries - please get in touch! I'm happy to discuss any ideas or requirements you might be thinking of.
