More Hans Christian Andersen

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.

Small Paper Rocking Chair

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.
