Scherenschnitte

Scherenschnitte

December was crazy busy with lots of secret crafting (I'll have to share some of that soon) so there hasn't been a whole lot of crafting going on here lately. I just needed a little time out from it all. I didn't put everything away, though. Amidst all the new books there were several on paper cutting or scherenschnitte and a new set of x-acto knives.

These are my first two attempts. My knife skills need a little work but that comes with practice. The black one was cut from origami paper and the other was cut from parchment paper. I think I prefer working with the parchment but I do like the look of the black paper.

Scherenschnitte

I know I should have scanned these but the scanner is not hooked up right now so you'll have to settle for photos. You get the idea though.

Now that looks like fun.
I really like the bottom one.

Hope you have fun with your parents.
