Our Story

Cut Out + Keep began as Cat's craft blog in 2003 while she was studying at university in Dundee, Scotland. It was a place for her to share tutorials for the crafts she was making and, after posting over two-hundred projects, boyfriend Tom decided to make things easier by building a system to share step-by-step tutorials in a fast and simple way.

It was the first of it's kind and we soon realised it was a tool that would be useful to other crafters. Just before graduating in 2007, we transformed the site in to a community where everyone could make and share tutorials. Today, the site hosts over 50,000 amazing projects for every type of craft from over 100,000 crafters all around the world!
