Wycinanka Polish Paper Cut
WYCINANKA: "BEAUTIFUL 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.
