The sunflowers are starting to bloom along the roadside, and I was inspired to try my hand at some more papercuts. The top cut is 11 x 14, and all the black lines are cut paper. It got a little tricky to keep the lines straight as I tried to glue the colored pieces on underneath.

This sunflower was much easier to accomplish because it much smaller at 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. The paper lines were much more stable.

Hanging Out with Friends

Here is a papercut that I cut a little while ago based on an old photo. I wanted to try something a little bit different by leaving the black paper around the outside. I didn't think about the staples that I used to hold my pattern on top of the black paper, however, so I ended up with staple holes along the outside. Fortunately, those are easily covered up with a mat.
