Cooperation in obtaining a thumbprint was the first essential step. Such a trusting guy, haha.... Bill had no idea what she was going to do with it.
Jess was new to paper cutting, but had done stenciling and rubber stamp making before, which basically use the same skills - a steady hand and patience. She found she really enjoyed it and plans to do more.
I really like the way she positioned each print over a photograph, as the colors add such a nice amount of interest.
Jessica then placed the pair in matching thrift store frames that she had painted in stylish matte gray. See the how-to at her website.
I'm thinking a personalized paper cutting would make a really nice gift for Valentine's Day!
