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.
