DIY Papel Picaso.

Papel Picaso is a form of paper cutting that I adore.

So, I thought I would try my hand at it. I saw a Valentine's idea and went for it.
First, draw your picture. The trick is to make sure that everything is connected to something. Don't worry to much about pencil marks. They can be erased at the end.

Then, take a precision blade and cut everything out.
This whole page took about 30 minutes to cut.
I put it in an IKEA frame and Voila!
A fun, personalized gift for mom and dad!

I think I will try another design soon.
(hint: check back soon)
