More Papercutting by Hand…

My papercutting quest continues! I’m trying to cut out all 922 designs from a book of ‘decorative ornaments’ from Dover Books

Following on from yesterday’s post when I rediscovered the book “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments“, I have been relaxing this evening by doing a bit more papercutting by hand. It makes a refreshing change from doing it by laser.

Here are my latest cuts:

Favourite Laser Cut Souvenir from Venice

A laser-cut souvenir pop-up card from Venice.

My favourite laser cut souvenir so far…

Wherever I go my eye is always drawn to laser-cut and laser-etched items, and (as I mentioned in the last post) I was really pleased to see plenty of good quality laser-y products while I was on holiday earlier this month. In fact I was so pleased to see them that I even bought a few laser cut souvenirs.

This is a card that I bought in the Doge’s Palace. It’s got a nice simple front…

…and then when you open it you get the “wow” of the pop-up effect:

The makers are a bit mysterious – I can’t find them anywhere via the usual search engines – so if you can point me to their website please let me know! You can do that via the contact us page or Twitter (@LaserSister), or Facebook or the comments section below. Thanks!
