All my original, copyrighted work is hand cut using surgical scissors. I use either French silhouette paper or white text weight paper, with colored art papers occasionally layered for focal points. All papers and mats are acid free. Frames compliment the work, with many being shadow box style to allow the cuttings to be somewhat dimensional.
