It's a long story.

My partner in the most recent (and the previous 4) IYP swaps said she liked Robin Hood so I finally got it in my head to make her something along that line. I've experimented with paper cutting before but this was my biggest project so far (I know, not nearly as big as some of you amazing crafters out there get up to! But I was pretty proud of myself for continuing my education Smiley )


It's 5"x5" edge-to-edge. The picture part is about 3"x4" if I remember right. I found the silhouette online and made a few changes and additions, including putting in the words at the bottom.


I was happy (and relieved and surprised) to find a 5"x5" wood frame. My camera wasn't too happy about photographing the glass, though. Smiley

The paper is cardstock. I used a regular exacto knife to cut out the picture part and a small blade for the words. I've read there are blades better suited for this but I was having a hard time finding a base to put them on. There were lots of blade options at the craft stores but not a whole lot of handles. It worked out, though, I think? Smiley

Actually, the fact that it's small is really impressive. The smaller your canvas, the more difficult! Great work, and that green is so perfect for the subject.

Nice work and great result. I love that you did it by hand and not with a machine.

I am really amazed at the detail in this, and how small you were able to make those letters. It's very pretty. I now definitely pine for my own Calabaza paper cutting Smiley

It's fantastic! So much detail and character cut into such a small space.

I would never have the patience Cheesy
