This is another one that is sort of inspired by my library trip, but mostly not.

There’s a book in that stack on paper cutting, and the projects in it are amazing. I can’t wait to give it a deeper look.

In the meantime, though, I had paper cutting on my mind, so I decided to do some super old school paper cutting with the materials I had on hand, which included the Sunday comics, a scrap piece of paper and a pair of my daughter’s scissors (why hers were on my desk and not mine is anyone’s guess). try paper cutting as a quick and easy way to get your craft on

I really like this one.

The kids in the girl’s class love doing random paper cutting, and I kind of do, too. I’m definitely using one of those comics sheets in my art journal, and they look like they might be cool stencils, too.

This is a project you can do anywhere there is paper and scissors, whether at home or at work. So do it, take a picture and tag me with #ourdailycraft, why don’t you?

I’d love to know what your creative plans for the weekend are, too!

  1. Sarah,
    Nice share here, it sparks some inspirations. I myself love playing with papers and I do anything from manila papers, anything that comes into my mind and by the time I realize the floor is usually full of cuttings 🙂 And I must say that snow flake cutting just looks wow – Will play around with a little twist.
