Rediscover old world papercrafting! Scherenschnitte, which literally means "scissors cutting," is a lovely old Swiss-German folk art tradition. Pronounced share-en-schnit-ta, this venerable technique was introduced to colonial America by the "Pennsylvania Dutch," who applied it in intricate and symmetrical designs on marriage and birth certificates, silhouettes, valentines and love letters. Now Paper Cutting Old & New makes this ancient craft come alive, with easy step-by-step instructions and complete full-sized patterns for snipping your own framed treasures, holiday ornaments, unique cards, scrapbook pages and much more. Add a touch of old-fashioned elegance to your art, with easy-to-follow instructions for false-grain painting that will transform even the plainest frame.
