Petite & Precise is a fictional craft scissors brand that positions themselves for delicate and precise cutting.

The packaging is created with a delicate paper-cut butterfly to show it’s functionality. The butterfly in the front panel is a symbol of creativity, freedom, growth & transformation. These are important elements in art & crafts.

The packaging was fully cut and assembled by hand using craft paper hence it’s fully recyclable. Craft paper is also high in elasticity and has high tear resistance making it very durable. Besides, the packaging is re-purpose-able into a DIY lamp shade and there’s a light bulb included in the packaging.

What’s Unique?
I used paper-cutting technique to demonstrate the functionality of the scissors. The packaging is also reuse-able into a lamp shade.
