Today’s challenge was inspired in part by the paper cutting book I was reading and in part by a super simple Valentine’s card I once made with a drawing of the girl’s.
It’s easy to cut paper in simple shapes — or even not-so-simple shapes — and use the cutout as a sort of frame for a painting or drawing.
And because I’ve had flowers on my mind lately, I went with a flower shape.
Making a Cut Paper Frame
I also tried it with a using-up-the-leftover-paint project that’s just lines and dots. It’s fun to see the difference in the look depending on where you place the openings.
If you find a piece of art you really like with the cut paper overlay, you can tape the frame on using double-sided tape.
Have you done a cutout project like this before? It’s an easy way to give an old project a completely different look. And if you try it I’d love to see how yours turns out!
