Knipwerk




yesterday evening while watching TV....

Kay had sent me a bunch of vintage craft books, one is about cutting folded paper.

A very simple, but yet so satisfying technique because of the quick, sometimes unforeseeable results,
at least if you fold the paper more than once. Maybe also a good way for overcoming creative slumps.

I used notes, scissors (and cookies)

Have a nice weekend, lovelies!
