The Paper Pony is creating 3D Papercraft Shadowboxes

We are a husband and wife duo cutting all manner of nerdy things out of cardstock. Using foam adhesive tabs, rubber cement and just a touch of luck, we layer the cardstock into shadowbox frames to create a 3D picture. When you look at the photo straight on, the shadows and risen picture make the image look like it is jumping out at you.

From My Little Pony to Doctor Who to Attack on Titan and more, we love to turn our favorite fandoms into 3D works of art.

All of our items come in frame and ready to hang on your wall.

You can find us everywhere from TwitterFacebookdeviantArt and Etsy.

We plan to use the funds we receive from Patreon towards travel so we can hit as many conventions as possible next year! We have our sights set all over the US and plan to use the funding for hotels, airfare, convention costs and other materials for our business! We will also be using any funding we receive to fund more collaborative projects with other artists.

If you enter into our monthly raffle, we will be offering an exclusive shadowbox design that only our Patreon supporters will be able to get! 

Also, we have moved our customs to a batch system (meaning we will open up slots when we can). All Patreons will get early access to these slots and we can tell you that they go fast!

Goals
$86 of $500 per month
If we reach this goal, we will be able to close down our Etsy shop more often and open up customs! We love doing customs because it gives us the opportunity to do new designs! We just don't get a lot of free time to do them because we need to take care of orders first. But if we are able to bring in this amount of money, we won't need to rely so heavily on the Etsy shop and can really dig into creating a lot more customs!
