I made these paper cuttings from a dingbat font from fontriver.  They're easy!

To hand cut, choose the "letter" that you like and print it (large) on the back of your paper.

Fold the design into quarters--in half one way, then the other.  Some designs are easier to fold on the diagonal, and some straight across.





Cut.  Unfold.  Don't worry if your cut lines are not exactly on the printed lines on all the layers, it won't show from the front.

You can easily machine cut these.  Just plop the "letter" into your software and cut away.

Pretty, and a clever idea to use a font.

Great idea - I use fonts as graphics on my business cards. I bet these would work great on fabric - just print on fusible backed muslin, then attach to a bag or some other sewn object. Thanks for the links - I'm going to link up.
