Paper cutting

Yesterday evening I have cut this old Norwegian pattern which I found in a magazine
"Norsk Husflid". It is made from two A4 sheets of copy paper and sewn together in the centre.
Of course I am not a professional as Margreet is, but it came out very nice.
It is 28 cm. high and it took me one hour to cut it.

Ati, that is so beautiful! I can see why it took an hour - I'm amazed it didn't take way more than that, going in and out of all those little leaves! Are there special scissors for this kind of cutting? It's a wonderful table centerpiece. I'm impressed that you have yet another talent! =)

What a great job on the 3D paper cut. It reminds me that I haven't had my paper cutting patterns out in years -- thanks for the reminder!

Ati, that is really beautiful. I am not sure I would have the patience for that tedious work. :-)
