Princes in the Tower

Today is Alex' birthday and when I was over there in England, he mentioned that it would be interesting to do a silhouette book of the Princes in the Tower. Of course I needed to be educated about who exactly these princes were, but thought "Sure, that would be interesting." In my head, the silhouettes on either side, with the stairs going into their mouths of Richard III and Henry VII, would be a little more prominent. If I were to do it all again, I'd make them a little more scary. I like how the princes turned out though.

The post office told me the present wouldn't make it there until Friday, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had made it on the day of his birth. His postman put it in the bathroom window instead of the mail slot, so luckily it didn't fall in the toilet!

Some princes have all the luck. Not these two...stuck in a tower and in a bathroom. Where will they get stuck next. Liberate the Princes!

your work is sooo beautiful.
I like it so much.
I wonder about your german name of the blog: Scherenschnitte.
Is there no translation in english for it?
Have a nice day
greetings from Germany

Thanks everyone!

Simone, there is a translation and it's just called papercut, but that doesn't sound as cool as scherenschnitte!
