A detailed and delicate paper illustration of the home that is close to your heart, made to order by Laura Sayers.
Made with care and attention to detail, an intricate paper portrait of your house is the perfect gift for new or old home owners. With bright colours, clean shapes, and all on a novelty tiny scale, each piece captures the essence of a home in an illustration that is completely unique every time. Meticulously hand cut by Laura, with scissors and a lot of patience, each house uses around 170 different layers of paper. From individual bricks, to flowerbeds, to the highlights on a window - no detail is too small!
After you've placed your order I'll be in touch shortly to ask you a few questions about the specifics of your paper piece. Simply upload a high quality photo to your order enquiry of your house after placing your order; this will also be an opportunity to specify any colours you'd like to be included for doors, windows and flowers. I'll send over an initial sketch and also a proof of the final illustration before I pop it in the post.
