Handmade Wedding Present

If you're a regular visitor to my blog (or timed it just right on your one off visit!) then you might remember this post giving you all a sneak peak into a secret project I was working on. Well I can finally share it with you all now because it was a gift for my friends wedding (the the post below) and they loved it!

I am quite nifty with a scalpel after cutting an entire dictionary up at uni (don't ask) and I've been in love with Papercuts since I discovered the wonderful world of Rob Ryan in 2007 so I figured I would give it a go myself. I dug out a pencil and some paper and got to work on a design which was a lot easier than I thought considering I've never been good at drawing off the top of my head. I then managed to write in a half decent font, began cutting and hey presto - Bespoke wedding present for the happy couple!

So there you have it. I'm thinking of doing custom cut outs as gifts and commissions if people are interested. Let me know what you all think :)
