Here is a little something that was a bit more challenging than my usual papercutting; I'd have to say I was feeling adventurous! It's such a buzz to make it to the end with no "incidences", especially with a project like this.
I found this very interesting pattern in a lovely book titled Paper Cutting by Stewart and Sally Walton. It's said to be an Italian 18th century design and that in itself was interesting to me; I hadn't read before that the Italians were also there in the history of paper cutting.
This design measures 8 x 10 inches (20 x 26 cm) and I used my trusty Fiskars Fingertip craft knife for the project.
