WYCINANKA: "THISTLES AND DUCKS"
I folded the dark green paper in half and drew half of the flowers, leaves, and ducks on the back with pencil. Then, keeping the paper folded, I cut out the symmetrical design. When I unfolded it, I felt the flowers and leaves needed some colors, so I folded and cut pieces of scrap paper and glued them onto the shapes, keeping the design identical on each side.
