I cut and folded a tiny...

 from a clothing catalogue (White Stuff - as catalogues go they use pretty good quality paper). For size reference, they are between 1 and 2 inches tall.

ok not so much part of a zoo but...

and finally:

sorry for so many pictures! I got a bit carried away... there are more animals too that I haven't included. they're a little difficult to photograph!

Although the idea was my own, I was inspired a little to try paper cutting by Jeffery Rudell's articles on CraftStylish, and also by the work of Peter Callesen. But this was only my first attempt at paper cutting, so they don't really compare  Cheesy

Thanks for looking, comments and criticism very much appreciated!

Those are amazing!!!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

So beautiful and delicate. It makes great photographs, but I'd be afraid to have it around my kids. LOL!

This is awesome... even the photography blows my mind!

Stunning stuff, I love the flamingos too. The negative beneath them looks like a reflection on water, which just adds to the realism. Beautiful.

We are pretty, we are smart, we've got crafting in the heart.
