WYCINANKA: "BIG FLOWERS IN A TINY VASE"


I love the big, gorgeous, and graceful feeling of these flowers in their tiny vase.  I started with green paper, folded, and drew half the stems and leaves with pencil.  After I cut them out, I glued them on the white heavy poster board.  Each flower had to be folded in half, cutting out two at a time....the background color first.  Then the smaller pieces were cut the same way and glued.  I use white paper glue that dries clear.  It's amazing to think that they cut these wycinanki in Poland using sheep shears!
