Diana Beltran Herrera's latest paper projects


A Little Birdie Told Us

By Ambra Medda

We first came across (and immediately fell in love with) Colombian-born, UK-based Diana Beltran Herrera's incredibly detailed, playful paper birds last year. Since then, she's created a whole new flock of feathered friends and launched a personal collection of beautifully intricate, handmade stamps inspired by birds around the world. The project is in its early stages, but Diana plans to create additional stamps for other places in Europe and South America. So, so lovely!
