I am not sure where the urge to try this new craft came from. I have a feeling it was probably inspired by one of my favorite paper magazines Paper Runway from Issuu.
Intrigued, I thought how hard can it possibly be?
Some questions are better left unanswered.
Some thoughts as I sat there, knife in hand…
One wrong move and its time to start again
I should have stuck with straight lines for my first attempt
This has the potential to be quite dangerous ~ do I even have any band aids in the house?
Why am I holding my breath?
Ok, I have to admit, many thoughts of being a surgeon went through my head. And of course with those thoughts came many more questioning the importance of my life endeavour as I sat cutting out pretty flowers.( This is where you come in and leave me a comment telling me how inspired you are by my creative offerings….)
The heavier the cardstock, the better. Flimsy paper just doesn’t work here.
Cutting board should be on a slippery surface so rather than moving your hand around object, you move the entire board. This goes without saying – straight lines are easier than curved.
Well you have probably guessed where this is going. That’s right~ onto my next efuto! I just might be sending it your way.
These envelopes have become my new journal pages. A place to try new techniques, play with color and experiment ~ small scale.The beauty of these is that I get to share them with others. I am enjoying the enthusiastic response from the recipients.
Thanks to everyone who left a comment! Feel free to leave another because you just never know when an efuto may be coming your way!
Enjoy the holidays!
