About Cut Paper Fingerprints

Lori+Nate

Cut Paper Fingerprint art is perfect for celebrating the uniqueness of you! They make a distinct alternative to the traditional family portrait or a special keepsake to commemorate your wedding or anniversary!

All of my Cut Paper Fingerprints are hand cut specifically for you, from your very own fingerprints. Each print is taken from the fingerprint you provide, carefully prepared for cutting, then cut by hand, by me, using my trusty pink x-acto knife. Just as no two fingerprints are the same, no two paper cuttings will be the same either!!

I find it fascinating to look at the detail of something that is so unique to each person, we carry around with us always, leave all over the place, and yet never really look at!

{A NOTE ON BABIES' FINGERPRINTS}
 

Because babies' fingerprints are still developing & generally are not well defined enough to get a clear fingerprint in which I can discern the pattern, I cannot recommend these paper cuttings for children under the age of 2.

I want to deliver an art piece that will be cherished for years to come, so it is very important to start the piece with a clear fingerprint. While some of the definition in a good fingerprint is based on genetics, I have found that older children do give better prints.

I recommend waiting to give this a try until they are at least 2 years old, but even then it can vary greatly from child to child as to whether or not a good print can be taken.
