Paper Props and Papercut Home Decor - Sarah Louise Matthews

Paper art by Sarah Louise Matthews, a Textile Surface Design graduate in London, has an elegance about it. Spare lines and subtle colors are hallmarks of her work.

But that isn't to say she doesn't enjoy creating whimsical items, as proven by these cute crackers and cuckoo clock.

Sarah's Instagram feed (@_sarah_matthews) caught my eye before Christmas when she was posting pretty origami and die cut ornaments. Now that spring is coming (isn't it? please!) I'm sure we'll see more of her pastel designs for Easter and beyond. I admire Sarah's frequent use of neutrals, especially gray and white mixed with metallics.

A self-professed paper lover, her pattern-based work involves cutting, folding, slotting and interlocking. She creates props for merchant gift guides and has worked with Brides Magazine, Mollie Makes and Etsy. Paper flowers, pop-up cards, cut paper pet portraits and wall art are all fair game.
