Join the Holiday Paper Angel Exchange!
In honor of the lovely First Cut tradition of acknowledging donations from members with Paper Angels, we’d like to introduce the Holiday Paper Angel Exchange! Anyone who would like to participate will be matched randomly with another participating Guild member. You will create small angel- or holiday-themed paper treasures for one another–artworks that are relatively small scale, simple, and able to be mailed in an envelope. You and your Angel Partner will send your artwork directly to each other.
We will feature the Angel Exchange artwork online, and on our Instagram and Facebook pages, with artist attribution of course, as a holiday celebration and to help us get to know one another a bit better!
If you would like to participate, email Lucrezia (Angels@papercutters.org) to let her know by December 15. She will match you with a partner by December 20, and both of you will get each other’s names and mailing addresses. Create your angel, and send it before December 31 to your Angel Partner, along with a brief note sharing a bit about yourself, your life, and your artwork. Mail it out, and wait for the magic of the postal service to bring your partner’s angel and note to you, too! 🙂

Papercut Bookplate Designs Coming to GAP Members in the Mail
Recently, Guild members contributed their papercut artwork to the current exhibit at GAP’s National Museum in Somerset, PA, curated by Rebecca Raupach. And now, some of these beautiful member-created designs (the most popular, according to walk-in voters at the GAP National Museum) have been made into bookplates for the upcoming Member Gift Mailing!
There are plans afoot now to send it around also as a traveling show, hosted by GAP members around the country. If you think your area could host a showing at a specific place you have in mind, please let us know: Send mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
