Paper Cutting Old & New makes the venerable Pennsylvania Dutch paper cutting art of "scherenschnitte" come alive, with easy step-by-step instructions and dozens of complete full-sized patterns. Modern crafters will learn to apply this ancient technique to snip their own framed treasures, holiday ornaments, unique cards, scrapbook pages, and more. Only a few simple tools and supplies are needed-paper, mat board, watercolors, scissors and permanent pens. The authors also offer false-grain wood frame painting as an elegant option for the cut artwork.
