The Northern Paper Studio

Portfolio of papercut created for advertising assignments, decoration of business premises and private orders.


My name is Petra Staav and I live in the city of Sundsvall who located on the Baltic coast in northern Sweden. I am a paper artist and illustrator who creates in paper in all its forms and I really love this craft.

After about 6 months after I had started my company, I received a promotional mission of Sweden’s largest amusement park, Liseberg in Gothenburg. Their ice show was “Hansel and Gretel” as the theme and I cut out different shapes for them that the latter put together into various banners, advertisements and a promotional video.

My artworks vary in size and the largest papercut I created measuring 2.50 meters x 1.50 meters wide and was an order from Sundsvall Visitor Center to display the history of Sundsvall in their windows. They ordered two of these huge Papercuts and it was a challenge but a fun challenge.

But I really love to get private orders to create unique gifts to delight at weddings, baptisms, graduation and birthdays.
