Here’s my very first attempt at paper cutting and sculpting, which is somewhat inspired by the 1970’s Rankin-Bass stop-motion Christmas specials.  Yes, there are a couple of technical problems with this piece but at least I got my feet wet and tried it.  It was quite a bit of fun, actually!

One thing I discovered in this experiment was my scale was too small.  This piece is 8.5 x 11 inches and small details are just too hard to cut at that size.  Next time, I’ll go larger — probably poster size.  The text was added in Photoshop.
