Etsy Day: Scherenschnitte!

by

Many cultures have many different names for the art of cut paper: Scherenschnitte (German), Kirie (Japanese), Sanjhi (Indian) and Papel Picado (Mexican) are just a few. In honor of etsy day and my love of silhouettes, I’ve chosen some papercuttings that range from semi-traditional and folky to super-intricate and modern. All of these amazingly delicate works of art are cut by hand.
