How we make...ornaments!
All our products begin as a papercutting piece. Owner and Founder, Ali Harrison, creates each Light & Paper product our of paper, using on an x-acto knife, and her imagination.
Sometimes Ali will re-cut a design 4 or 5 times before we're happy with the final product. Ali cuts most of the designs "free hand" - only drawing out the outlines before she begins. The rest is cut from scratch, like drawing with a blade.
Once the pieces are cut, we put them into our scanner and upload them onto the computer. Then we work the digital magic using Adobe Illustrator, and convert the files to vector images. After the file is converted, just press print to send it to be cut by the lasercutter!
Once the design has been cut, we package them up and they are ready to go!
All our ornament sets come packaged within the wood they are cut from, in a cello bag with a fun sticker!
Pop each of the ornaments out, and then hang to display!
