How To Scherenschnitte

So my friend works at the Gallery of Contemporary Art, UCCS, and asked me to make a How-to video of papercutting. Here I talk about different types of paper, tools and techniques I use in the art of papercutting.

Here's the template used in the above video. Enjoy*! Download Free Squirrel Scherenschnitte.

*But don't enjoy it too much, please feel free to make this cutout for personal use and gifts for friends, but selling it is just bad karma. I used my brain to make this, use yours to make your own. Copywrite 2007: Cindy Ferguson

I made this one from a template and didn't mess up the white, so now I have two scherenschnittes of birds!

This one is modeled after some taxidermied birds I saw last summer when I went to the Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C.

Worship the Nut

It's been a while, sorry! I finally moved into my apartment and got everything put away and now I can make squirrel scherenschnitte to my heart's content. This was made in anticipation of an exciting video that I will be posting within the next week. Check back soon!
