I dunno about the rest of you, but birthday season is coming up for me.
Which also means: It's card-making time!
As you may recall, a few months back I decided to dabble in paper cutting.
After a brief hiatus, I am back at work with blade in hand!
Today I thought I'd share this cute template with you so you can give it a whirl for yourself.
You can download the template on flickr.
Print the image out at whatever size you want and on whatever color paper you prefer, and cut out the design.
For a professional tutorial by lovely paper cutting artist Elsa Mora, visit all about paper cutting dot com.
Like she says, its advisable to start with the smallest details first, and work your way outward. I'd also recommend using a tiny pair of scissors over a blade for the lettering.
Once finished, the paper cut may be adhered to the front of a blank card. And voilà! Handmade sweetness sure to brighten someone's special day.
I'd love to see photos of any finished products!
If you give it a try, be sure to share on twitter and mention me @missliamendez so I don't miss it :-)
