I tried out a new paper cut template last night. It’s cute. :) If I can find wrapping paper, I may paste it on that as the backdrop:
If you’d like to try the template out yourself, download it here.
One last paper cut for today. For this one I used a template of the Mayflower, only I didn’t do the year that was listed on that ship in the original. I like it better without them. :)
I think next time I’m gonna have to change some things to pirate it up and make it more interesting. :P
Try the template out yourself here.
I tried out one of Cindy’s recent scherenschnitte templates from her blog. This one is of Cinderella. I created mirrored versions of her and positioned them slightly off-kilter on the scanner. It kind of makes me think of two women just out doing their laundry. Then crazy birds try to steal it away. :P
You can download the template to try out yourself here. :)
Beautiful/Decay has a great piece on paper cutting up. It features 9 artists: Bovey Lee, Peter Callesen, Chris Natrop, Georgia Russell, Hunter Stabler, Kako Ueda, Natasha Bowdoin, Emma Van Leest, and Andreas Kocks.
I so want to learn to paper cut like this some day:
It’s awesome! :)
And trees, I can never get enough of cuts with trees in them:

I love this! It’s a gorgeous video! It’s a stop motion short film, written and directed by Angela Kohler and Ithyle Griffiths. Starring Alison Sudol from A Fine Frenzy. Music is “Sleepwalking” by A Fine Frenzy. There are a few paper cuts in this and they were done by Mr. Yen.
And like Cindy from Scherenschnitte, I’m now wondering if I can get away with that shade of red hair. :P
As I mentioned on Twitter, as soon as I saw the template Cindy posted today, I knew I’d have to try it out tonight. I made one rider into a girl by adding a ponytail. Think of them as twins heading into dinobattle. Heh. Now I have “Wonder Twins, activate” in my head. :P And, I couldn’t help but think of Dresden and good ol’ Sue when I was cutting these out. :D Weird night. What can I say?
