Ellen cuts paper

Seasonal stars

Posted in Uncategorized by Ellen on June 19, 2010

A quick set of Christmas cards, decorated with old paper scraps from left over projects.

I wanted the cards to be small, using minimal paper, as Christmas is only one short time of the year. The cards had to have a visually effective design but had to be simple enough so that it was quick to assemble. I wanted the cards to be able to stand freely on flat surfaces as well as sit easily on a tree if that was what the receiver wanted. The cards were addressed to my new neighbours so the small area for text was perfect for a short and sweet message. The tactile handmade nature of the cards meant that I got many thankful replies and warm winter wishes.

    I just saw your pictures on Shini’s blog today. They’re fantastic. Seriously I love them.

    And also: I just started doing paper cuts today at work, so I can appreciate these.
