Those are so beautiful. I don't think I've ever seen papercuttings matted and framed so I think that is very neat.

Gorgeous! I'm working on decorating my little one's nursery right now and I love this idea.

You've given me some great ideas Eakarink - though I'll probably choose some simpler designs.  The great part about paper cutting is that if you get a great message or design together (like your Winnie the Pooh) half your work is already done.

My husband gave me The Prophet when we first started dating.  I love the imagery in his writing and I love the tree you made.  They really click. 

Huh, I'm going to have to go pull that book out again.

Uhhhhmazing.  How long did it take to do that tree?  It looks flawless.  And I adore Pooh and that is just too cute.

They are both beautiful!  I'm jealous of your mad papercutting skills!!  They look like something that was perfectly cut by a machine.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone! To answer a few questions:

-I generally design my papercuts on the computer, and I usually create the design by arranging images I find online, because I'm not so great at the art part but decent at the layout/design part. For the one for my mother, the tree was based on an image that I found online, and I added the text and the ducks. For the Winnie the Pooh one, I traced a picture of Winnie, but the balloon and text were done from scratch.

-I cut the designs using an Exacto knife, on a self-healing cutting mat.

-I would guess the tree one took maybe 4-5 hours of cutting? The Winnie the Pooh one was a much simpler design and so it probably didn't take me more than 2 hours. It's hard to calculate because I tend to work on papercuttings in bits and spurts -- if I work for too long I start to go a little bit crazy and the knuckles on my index finger get sore!
