Here in the Northeast, like most of the United States, we’re battling sizzling temperatures, unbearable heat and humidity-perfect for staying in the AC and crafting!
Here’s another project I made for my grandson Jackson’s room. I love paper-cutting and this is a little something I saw at home goods and said, “I can make that!” And, I did…
Of course I made my own simple animal outline templates by drawing the animals shapes on scrap cardboard and cutting them out. These I used to trace around on to my Designer Series Paper.
Once you have your animal templates, trace them on the back side of the designer series paper you want to use. Make sure you trace them backwards from the way you want them to face in your original.
Here’s a group of photographs of the animals:
The background is an 8″ x 10″ piece of stripped designer series paper. For the dirt I tore a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock and for the clouds I tore pieces of Whisper White Card Stock. Then adhere all the components together and embellish as you see fit. When you’re happy with the composition place it in a frame.
For Jack’s paper-cutting I primarily used International Bazaar Designer Series Paper (retired), because this matches most of the colors in his room. You can easily change out the designer series paper of choice. in fact the new Quartrefancy Specialty Designer Series Paper would work beautifully!
