They are so full of color, they just pop!  One question:  Do you ink the paper and then cut the design, or cut it out and then color it?  Either way they are beautiful!

Thanks everyone! ^_^ such happy replies! They make me smile Cheesy

I cut them and then color them, but first using color and then cutting would be fine too.

arachnes thumb, wel yes Smiley I personally enjoy using them for birthday cards, decorating my notebooks etc, and my mirror and windows etc. And at work I teach kids how to make them, I work with kids.
Lol my house is full of flowers over here Tongue

So colorful! They're beautiful. What kind of "special paper" are they?

I wish I knew the English name Smiley but I cannot find it.
Its a kind of papier that absorbs fluid really well.
