I’ve been experimenting with paper cutting and wondering what to do with the finished product. This week I’ve made one into a card for a family member’s birthday.
Firstly, draw a simple outline onto some scrap paper. Once you are happy with your design, either copy or draw it onto some coloured paper.
Using a craft knife and a self healing mat, cut around your design. This is quite fiddly and requires some care.
Once the design is cut out, stick it onto a piece of contrasting paper and then onto a blank card.
Or, you could paint a background and then stick the papercut on to it when it is dry – depends on what time you have and how arty you are feeling.
