Lettres Découpées

Claire Borel

Learn to create text with origami architecture. The origami architecture is a 3D technique of geometrical patterns, letters or other objects obtained with cutting and folding. The technique is similar to pop-up images. The process is specific as it uses a sole sheet of paper (usually white). These white paper shapes allow for a captivating play of shadow and light.
