I made these two papercuttings recently. The first one was a gift for my mother; the quotation is from Khalil Gibran's "The Prophet." The second one was a gift for a friend who loves Winnie the Pooh; it was my first time designing the text freehand instead of using a typeface! The first is cut out of an 8.5"x11" sheet of paper and the second one is in an 8"x10" frame, to give you a sense of scale.

Lovely, especially the first one. Did you design it yourself? It looks absolutely beautiful!

Those are beautiful!  While I love Winnie the Pooh as much as the next person, I have to say my favorite is Khalil Gibran quote.  I had to read it several times to actually get it because its Saturday and I'm slow on the weekends.   Roll Eyes  But I love that tree.  Its beautiful.  Great work!

These are fantastic! I love the details in the tree and how well you've done the silhouette of Winnie. The ducks are super cute too Cheesy did you use an exacto knife?
