The amazing creators of the week are Dmytro and Iuliia of DreamPapercut -- a shop specializing in hand-cut paper art silhouettes from a single sheet of paper and all of pieces are interconnected.

All about DreamPapercut: "Our story begins from the childhood, when being children we visited creative classes such as painting, drawing and paper craft. Growing up and studying at university we didn't pay proper attention to creativity, but it always lived in our hearts.

Once, we created a greeting card with hand-cut elements for our friend’s birthday. It was the first realized step how much creativity occupies an important place in our lives. After that, we took interest in paper cutting art and started creating paper cut silhouettes.

Then we decided to create our DreamPapercut shop on Etsy and share our art with other people. Paper cutting is very amazing process, when at the beginning you just see a piece of paper and after spending several hours/days to cut, paper becomes a beautiful art work. Silhouettes for us are not just a sheet of paper. We put in our works a piece of love, care, kindness, happiness and truly believe that people can feel the same emotions looking at our paper cuts.

All our works are inspired by nature, life and people who like our works. To get inspiration we go for a walk to the parks, forests to enjoy the nature. Also we like meet with our friends and spend time talking and having tea. It helps us to relax and get new energy to create original works.

We want to say through our art that world is beautiful, amazing and wonderful. Every second you can feel it perfection. There are main eternal values in the world like nature, love, help, kindness, care that everyone should spread, share and protect to live in harmony with yourself, other people and the whole world."

A tip for other sellers: "You should listen to your customers and use their advice and requests but do not lose your own way. We can't say that we use special ways to promote our shop, [but] kind, responsive and selfless people feature our shop and art works on their great blogs and this helps us."
