Happy Halloween Swiss Style

I wish you a Happy Halloween with scherenschnitte, a wonderful traditional Swiss craft from the German part of Switzerland.  My little boy and I designed this one, but if you want to see some scherenschnitte by an accomplished comtemporary paper cutter, look at this blog site... http://papercutting.blogspot.com/  For traditional scherenschnitte by a contemporary artist, see http://main.nc.us/openstudio/MHGrabman/

It was fun to try....but it's hard. I'm amazed at the intricate paper cuttings I have seen in a book I got about traditional paper cutting. Beth

Wow! I love this! I think my 13 year old son would do a good job trying out this art form. I will show this to him after school today...maybe he can make a scene for Thanksgiving!
