Custom Papel Picados

Due to a happy misunderstanding, I have started creating custom papel picados. I thought I was being commissioned to create my papel picado designs, done digitally and then printed out. But my customer wanted actual cut out, custom picados. I saw it as a challenge and an opportunity to create what I’d always wanted to try, but never actually had the time to do. Yes, it’s hard work, but I enjoy it much more than I thought I would. I’m pretty quick at it as well! Recovery for my hand is the longest part of the process. Here are the first two of a 5 piece series. I’ll be working on 3 tomorrow and hopefully get 4 and 5 done this weekend. Stay tuned! And let me know what you think of these so far!
