Decorative Vector Ornaments: Paper cut 009

This is Day 9 of my mission adapting/cutting designs from the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned in this post.)

This one took nearly an hour to cut. I was using a fairly blunt scalpel blade, so I really should have changed it, but (1) I couldn’t be bothered, and (2) it feels a bit wasteful to change a blade every time I cut a new design.

When I start tearing and stretching the paper I know that it’s really time to change the blade. So I guess the next piece will be cut with a new blade. (See if you can spot where I accidentally ripped this one):
