The twins Helene and Simone Bendix have worked with paper clips for many years. Together, they have created a poetic universe with designs and ideas that both set a mood and are obvious as gifts and greetings to those you care about.
When the twins hold workshops, they encourage participants to express themselves through what they cut or fold. There is a democratic dimension to their paper universe. It is otherworldly, but at the same time also achievable. An invitation to grab the scissors. And rarely do recycling and poetry go hand in hand as well as here. A combination that makes their craft and cut more than just decorative.
There are lots of ideas in the book, but Helene and Simone emphasize that the aim is not to create a perfect copy of what they have made. They hope to give you enough inspiration to create your very own stories.
There are plenty of templates you can draw from and start cutting right away. They are intended as a starting shot and a push to get started. You will quickly discover that it is actually not that difficult, and then you can dive into making your very own clips.
