Wycinanka Polish Paper Cut

WYCINANKA: "BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS"

Real flowers are a great inspiration for making paper cuts.  I remember my mother taking flowers apart and using the petals for patterns to make her crepe paper creations.  In doing Wycinanki or Polish Paper Cutting, the flowers are very stylized rather than realistic.  It's like cutting a flower in slices and seeing it from the inside out.  You really feel as though you are looking through the flower.
