Has anyone else tried papercutting? Our WI Crafts group decided we'd have a go, none of us had tried it before. It took a lot of concentration (and time, I had to finish mine at home) but it was fun to do.

That is beautiful Carolyn I suppose you would have to have a real sharp craft knife to do that. Are you going to put it on a special card or frame it. Linda x.

I have for a lng time wanted to give this craft a go, but not had time to try it yet, as like you say it’s time consuming and you need to concentrate to save yr fingers too πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†

Yours is brilliant, are you now hooked?

That's lovely carolyn, I bought a book about it many years ago it was done on black paper , however the craft knife and my unsteady hand put me off. I would love to be able to manage that . Thanks for sharing

It looks great Carolyn. I think it's something I would have done when I was younger, I liked intricate things, like I taught myself calligraphy long before it was popular and as a child spent hours with rulers and protractors and a compass drawing the most intricate of patterns but now I don't have as good eye sight and I have a bit of arthritis in my fingers so they tend to cramp up very easily. I'm afraid I'd just do that on my cricut machine now 😒
