Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 25: Flower Border

Flower Border

This is from an ongoing papercutting project that I’ve been doing (trying to work my way through all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book, by Dover Books.)

I’m quarter of the way through the 100-day challenge!! Today’s design is number #540 in the book. I couldn’t think of anything particularly imaginative to call it, so this one is “Flower Border”:

…and the middle…

…and the bottom:

It reminds me of an ornate piece of decorative ironwork, or a piece of a gate or something. I might be able to use this for a wedding invitation or similar.

And I think I’ve done an OK job of the cutting. Maybe the bottom section is the dodgiest part, but because the design has a lot of flowers and leaves in it, it just seems like the wobbly lines are part of the natural design.

It was a nice big piece to cut, and took well over an hour, and I didn’t accidentally stretch the paper or rip any of the design. So on the whole I’m pretty pleased with it. Yeah – I reckon it’s one of my favourites so far in this project.
