My ATC trade this month is based on the papercuts of Hans Christian Andersen.
These are not exact copies of his work, but they are bits and pieces that I put together in different ways.
I like how he kept his cuts so simple. It is hard for me to do that.
He often gave his cuts away. You can tell that he really liked dancers. I placed a cut rocking chair in each of these cards/envelopes for an extra bonus.

The last couple of weeks, I have been looking at the papercuts done by Hans Christian Andersen.
Amongst all the whimsical cuts I found this little chair. I knew I just had to try one of my own. I folded a paper in half and cut the above.
Once cut, it only took a few folds, and here is my own chair. It is only a few inches tall. It is always fun to find new ways of using paper.
