I started out with this one as it seemed to be the easiest.
Next I moved on to a little harder one. (The starry circle around the Christ child's head was tricky, but fun.)
And last I did this one. I thought it needed something so I took some stencils and traced the words backwards and then cut them out. Yes, everything in the picture is cut by hand.
So, if you're feeling in the mood to try your hand at some Scherenschnitte pieces, give these a try. You can download and print your own patters from this blog.
