March's craft: Paper cutting

Sorry to be late with last month's new craft... I almost got it done in time but trying to do a new craft with a 3 year old dashing about and wanting to have a go with your exciting looking knives isn't as easy as I had thought it would be.

So this for March's new craft I decided on paper cutting and after getting the kids to bed the other night I managed to get the design for this lovely little bird decoration printed out and cut all in the same evening. I love some of the beautiful paper cut projects that I've seen on the internet recently so when I saw this quick project in my Kirstie Allsopp "Craft" book I couldn't wait to have a go.

There area  couple of things I'll try to remember to do differently next time - use a sharp/new knife, cut paper not card & set up some decent lighting before you start.
