"I love you" daisy chain paper cut template, with instruction guide, warmup sheets, and five free practice designs.
This is a DIY papercutting template for you to print out and cut, available instantly after purchase from Etsy. It was designed and created from scratch by myself.
Two versions of the design are included, a standard flat single piece with optional colour in fills, and also a 3D multilayered version with the flowers as separate pieces which gives a 3D shadow effect. These are both designed to fill a standard A4 frame perfectly. Also included are ready scaled down versions that will fit on an A5 card. To make them super easy, the in fills are also on the template, both a blank white version that you can paint (for the photos I used watercolours), and also a coloured set so if you print the template out with colour they will be ready to use with no faff.
I'd say this was a beginner design, although if you choose to make the small 3D one with in fills can be a little fiddly. If you're making the 3D version, or are going to paint the in fills or flowers, I'd recommend a slightly thicker paper or card than normal to ensure they're strong enough. It should take around an hour to complete.
Along with the template you will receive an instruction sheet with a guide on how to complete your papercut, as well as tips and tricks to ensure you get the best result. Also included is a practice/warmup sheet containing several warmup patterns, as well as five small designs for you to practice on ("thank you", "be happy", "awesome", a flower circle, and village scene).
All you need to complete your papercut is some paper or light card, and a sharp craft knife (a scalpel or xacto is ideal). A self healing cutting mat is a good idea too, but if you're just starting out you can improvise with some thick card, or an old magazine.
Personal use - this means you can print, cut, and keep or gift as many finished papercuts as you like, you can also donate the finished cuts for charity. For any other use please contact me about a Commercial license.
