Papercutting Philly (my homage to Joe B)

I recently started a side-side project doing small (3×5) paper cuts of Philly. My science brain likes the clean lines and orderliness of precision cutting, and my hyperactive brain actually concentrates for the couple hours it takes to make each one. I’ve been creating custom ones for friends and whomever else answered my posts on social media, but they’re something I’m thinking about potentially selling to raise funds for a Philly Love Note website upgrade — a much much needed one. Any thoughts?

    You should add a Paypal donate button to the site. I bet tons of people would love to help you maintain and upgrade Philly Love Notes. I know I would in a heartbeat.

      Hmmmm…good idea. I’ll have to think about it. Getting back to your Qs now.

    I would love to have the south Philly one framed… You selling?

    • Emma Fried-Cassorla

      Hey Jennifer,
      Haven’t decided yet. I’ll probably make them for a kickstarter for the site. Stay tuned.

    I would definitely buy one as well… These are so fun!

    Very cool. I just ran the Philadelphia ½ Marathon with a friend. I would love to buy a map of the race route.

    • Emma Fried-Cassorla

      Hey Cheryl

      Congrats on running the half marathon! As a newbie runner, I cannot even fathom 13 miles. I sell all the maps here: I’m sure we could figure out a way to trace out the route.

      Best, Emma
