An untrained eye might call it an Instagram trend, but it’s been a popular sub-culture among paper art enthusiasts for some time now. Tiny botanical paper crafts are having a moment as the larger audience has found the allure of these adorable works with the help of social media platforms. One of the brightest stars of the tiny-papercraft-sky is definitely the Russian artist Tania Lissova, who has gathered close to half a million fans on Instagram.
Tania Lissova crafts beautiful botanical pieces, from daffodils to sunflowers and bluebells, and ficuses to indoor succulent assortments, each made of paper that has been masterfully cut and hand-painted for as authentic look and feel.
With a micro-style of paper cutting technique, Lissoca creates minuscule paper flowers, plants, and other botanical designs
Lissova originally studied architecture and arts, which is where she learned the art of drawing, illustration, and paper model building. This experience, coupled with inspiration from other artists, developed into a passion for designing and crafting tiny paper plants. The artist uses a micro-style of paper cutting technique to create minuscule paper flowers, plants, and other botanical designs. With the help of really sharp precision cutters and blades, Lissova crafts three-dimensional pieces depicting potted plants and flower bouquets to such detail, you wonder how she does it.
