Standard Rosebush Papercut from Decorative Vector Ornaments Book
This ‘standard rosebush’ papercut design is from an ongoing papercutting project that I’ve been doing. (I’m trying to cut my way through all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book.)

The design is number 122 in the book. (Because the designs don’t have names, I’ve come up with my own title of ‘standard rosebush’. (‘Standard’ = ‘tree-shaped rosebush on a long stem’ as opposed to ‘common/boring rosebush’).
I really like this design:
For once I don’t think I’ve got any really obvious ‘snags’ in it, that draw my eye away towards errors rather than towards the overall design. Instead I just enjoy looking at the shapes of the flowers and stem, and marvelling at how the heck I’d managed to cut such thin lines:
Even though I really like this design, I’m not sure I can think of an occasion when I might use it in future. However, I’m glad that this series of papercutting projects has caused me to cut it.
It took over two hours to cut, and I was listening to the audiobook version of Lucy Hounsom’s Starborn book at the time.
I’ve no idea how many of the designs I’ve managed to cut from the book, yet. I’ll have to do a count-up soon, because I think I might be close to halfway…
