has anyone tried paper cutting as an art? like the old fashioned pictures that were cut out of black --i want to try it and am hoping someone has some ideas on where to get the patterns
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!
You can try this link for instructions:
