Paper Cutting: Ring of Pineapples


Ring of Pineapples, proved to be an intricate paper cutting. "Finishing off" involved a lot of extra tiny cuts to remove the weeny triangles within each pineapple.

I love the lace look and being able to replicate a crochet doiley design on paper. This pattern is one I was keen to try and it’s from a Backstreet Designs publication, titled Scherenschnitte Pineapple Doilies.

Noted: The proper pronunciation of this word is “shear’ en-schnit-tah”.
