Paper Cutting

Today I had my first go at paper cutting art. The design I chose was Squirrely Valentine from Little Acorn. 

I made the mistake of not changing my blade before I began to cut and because it was abit blunt it dragged along the paper. Even though the design is simple I still found it quite tricky cutting around the acorns. 

I'm not sure if I could spent much time paper cutting as my hands were becoming quite painful when holding the knife even for something this small.
While I was searching for designs I found lots of free ones on Scherenschnitte. Some of the designs I think could also look nice as silhouette embroideries.
