Decorative Vector Ornaments: Paper cut 010

Woohoo – I’m into double figures for my ongoing mission of adapting/cutting designs from the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned in this post.)

This one definitely needed a new blade, so I treated myself to a shiny replacement blade. Because of that the cutting went quite well, and I don’t think I accidentally cut or ripped any of it:

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):

This one only took about twenty minutes to cut (while watching a recorded episode of Antiques Roadshow):

It’s very similar to this cut (below) from a post a few days ago

Day 6 in my adventure adapting/cutting all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned here).

This was a fairly big and detailed design so it took a few days to finish. Even though the lower lines have gone wiggly because the paper got a bit stretched, I still quite like it:

Decorative Vector Ornaments: Paper cut 003

This is Day 3 of my mission to adapt/cut all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book (as mentioned in this post).

This one had quite a few floating dots in the original design that I had to leave out of the papercutting, and other parts of the design needed to be joined together with little lines (otherwise they would have just fallen on the floor because they weren’t attached to anything). Also I needed to enlarge the designs a bit, because otherwise I don’t think it would have been possible for me to get all of the details.

I like the overall effect of this one, but I did mess up a few times. See if you can spot where!
