HOLA! Well I felt the need to blog about the sample Z BOX! What is a Z BOX you ask?? Well first you need to know what Zibbet is. Zibbet is a an online store of artists and crafters. I have a shop there and you can visit it here. Z BOX is a wonderful box you can purchase here that is stuffed full of wonderful goodies from various Zibbet shop owners! They are always changing things up so there are different samples all of the time. I sent in 20 of my cards with envelopes with them and my fancy new business cards I got from "MOO".

1. Put 2 tablespoons of flour in each container.
2. Add enough water to make a paste. If it's too watery, just add a little more flour. Too thick? Add some water. You'll get it right eventually!
This is about the right consistancy.
3. Add some food coloring and stir until blended.

You will probably see a lot of papercutters using Photoshop to make their designs (Or stealing images off of Google). I don't do this. #1: I can't afford photoshop. #2: I am an artist, why not use my God given talent? Who needs the computer? Although I do use the computer to research and get inspiration. If I see something I like on Google search I'll use the image as inspiration and change it to make it my own. NOT COPY IT!
Here's the completed drawing.
The silhouette pape is black on one side and white on the other.
I then tape the image to the white side of the paper. I only put tape on the part of the image that will be cut away.
I get my tools ready. My X-Acto knife and a swivel knife. Pink of course.
I then cut out from in inside of the picture to the outside. It's easier this way. get all the tiny details first!
Then I pop it out.
