Sorry for the lack of Template Tuesdays. You know how sometimes when you have something important to do but you don't want to do it and you put it off and put it off and everything else seems to get put off along with it? That's what's going on in my head. Anyway! Easter is coming up! Such a wonderful time. Here's a little mirror image cut that you can use for a variety of things.
This template is a little ragged, so you'll have to imagine smooth lines where smooth lines should be. Also, the holes in the flowers, I just used a .25 and a .125" hole punch. So much easier. The trickiest part about this cut is remembering not to cut out the chicken part while it's folded. Cut out everything else (well, you can save the hole punching for last) and THEN cut out the chicken.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a mermaid and I believed that mermaids really did exist (part of me still does). Often, while swimming, I would pretend I was a mermaid and that my name was Brook. It's really difficult to swim with your legs together when you don't have fins. Anyway, here's a template Tuesday for all y'all who wished you were mermaids.
This is what the paper cut will look like. Fold along the dotted line. Do NOT cut out the dotted line parts that are white. DO cut out the dotted line parts that are gray. Also, remember to cut out the gray, inside areas first.

Are you guys super excited for the new Alice in Wonderland to come out? I am. I kind of want to read the book before I see it though because it seems like the movie is going to be out of control and I'd like to create a few images in my head from my own imagination before having them skewed by Tim Burton. I'll probably see the movie first though. So, I thought in honor of the upcoming presentation, I'd do a little papercut of a scene from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Here she is playing croquet with a flamingo for a mallet and a hedgehog for a ball.
This is what your template will look like. Remember to cut the inside areas out first. All the inside parts are shaded gray. Then cut out the outer perimeter. Enjoy!

Isn't this just beautiful?
Director Angela Kohler and her boyfriend Ithyle Griffiths latest work -- a little short stop-motion film with their friend Alison from A Fine Frenzy. So stunning. I kind of want to go out and dye my hair this red. Found on Black Eiffel.
