Papercut Tree

I love to cut paper with X-Acto knifes or craft blades to make pictures! This one is around 6″ by 10″, and has a layered paper background.

When making a papercut (the name for this kind of art), I find it helpful to draw the design in pencil on the back of the paper, and cut it on the back as well. Keep in mind when cutting on the back that your design will be opposite on the front. For example, when you cut out words they be backwards when you turn the paper around.

Feel free to check out this Mini Hardcover Book and Mini Beaded Leather Book where I used papercut art in small books I made.

    Really cool art medium! I have taken to putting cutouts under my bookcloth for an unusual blind embossed look.

      That’s a really good idea – I should try that. I looked at your blog and you make really good books! I’ve only made small ones.

I've done a pitiful job of reading this year. Do you have advice on how to read more (or watch TV less) amidst stress and a tired mind? Eternal God I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast!
