About Gemma Esprey Designs

Gemma Esprey Designs

Delicate papercuts designed and cut by hand

Hello! I'm Gemma and I began papercutting for fun back in 2011. I had a Folksy shop for a few years then I took a huge break and five years later I'm back! It's lovely to be creating things again and the smaller the detail, the more I enjoy it. I draw all my designs by hand with a pencil and cut them out by hand with a scalpel. I really enjoy working on layered pieces like that grumpy Goldfinch above.

In 2021, I am introducing papercuts on canvas. I had the idea before my break in 2016 but didn't manage to put it into action until now. So now, I get to paint as well! Any excuse for a Hobbycraft visit!

I also have an admin job and work full time, so papercutting is mostly done at 5am on weekdays and as much as I can squeeze in on weekends around my family and walking my border collie puppy.

I love knitting, crocheting, sewing, stitching, quilting, and basically any craft I fancy. I like to have a go at everything! Knitting is probably my number one and I usually have at least two projects on the go at any one time.

Thank you for visiting my Folksy shop. It means a very great deal to me. If you have any questions, please send me a message or pop over to my Instagram account @gemmaespreydesigns
