Paper Cut Leaf


As you would have noticed from the past few posts, that I have been enjoying paper cutting lately.I think these paper cutting projects has not only helped me in improving my paper cutting skills, but has also helped work on my patience, which I have very little of....;)



I have to admit, a few times while cutting this leaf, I stopped myself and thought why do I have to do this and then a different voice in my head would say, keep going, it will look nice at the end. Oh well, after two hours of cutting, I was quiet pleased with the result. The only thing is only if I would have drawn a much better leaf to start with..hah...may be next time

For this, I used an x-acto knife to cut a picture drawn on a white printing paper. Here are some of the pictures of how I started and in the process.



Almost there. Just a few more cuts left. 



And finally done!!!! Yay!!!!

      Hahaha..it was a little bit more work than I had expected.
      When I started I didn't realize I will spend that much of work. But you are right, the result was worth it...:)

    1. I placed the paper on a cutting surface and used the x-acto knife to cut it. I cut along the lines I drew on paper.

    1. Not too long, once you get the hang of it..using xacto knife was just like using a pencil to draw, but instead just cut it...:)

  15. I don't think you have little patience. This looks like a very time consuming project. And it's so cool...
