Paper cut



I saw these on Marthas page awhile ago and thought they would be the perfect grandparent valentine. I went and got the Martha craft knife at Michaels and I have to say I think it made this project a lot easier. The handle on it is soft, so it doesn't hurt your fingers after using it for a long time like the metal ones sometimes do. I have not glued this to the brown background yet, because I can't decide if I like the brown or not. I can see how this would be an addicting hobby!

Absolutely stunning! There's a great free squirrel pattern available at this site (along with great inspiration):

well, I now I have the link on my machine at work so I'll send it next week -- can't seem to find it here at home. Remind me if I forget, because it's a paper cutting artist's site that I think you'll like to see.
