4.5" x 6" 9" x 12" Scherenschnitte
The rooster snip that I cut yesterday was okay, but it was huge. You'd think that after cutting these things for about a year now, getting the size right would be second nature. When I started out on the rooster snip, I had something about 4" x 6" in mind. But when you are snipping these symmetrically, you have the piece folded in half. When you open it, the size doubles. Makes sense. But sometimes I just don't think. So I ended up with this large, and slightly floppy, paper sculpture.
Today I went back and cut one the size that I really had intended. Small and sturdy.
This one is 4.5" x 6". I am happy.
