Deer Me


More experimenting with 3d papercuts. I've had these shadow boxes from IKEA for years and never have used them. I finally got around to it and painted the inside blue and the outside gold and made a deer papercut for Jake for Christmas. I think he liked it.

Cindy, If you don't mind me asking...how do you get the trees, etc. to stand up?
I love the 3-d effect.
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Thanks Jaime!

Sharon, it's because I'm magic! I also have a lip of paper folded under on the bottom and I glued a strip of paper in between each scene. I also used heavier paper.
