Are you talking about Scherenschnitte?

Try some of these links:

I haven't seen any books in the craft stores for quite a few years, but you can also use scroll saw patterns.

yes that is what i am talking about but i want more modern and easy patterns--the one i bought online is of a bird in a branch--but it was 5 dollars and i don't want to pay that much for each one--
do you do that type of art?

I used to do it many years ago. I've since sold all my pattern books in a yard sale :(

Check your library for scroll saw patterns - there may be some that are fairly simple!
