art for Izzy: beautiful AND inexpensive (you can do this!)

You all know I dig paper cutting. I have a hard time committing to design-y stuff around the house so this project is a perfect quick and cheap addition to Izzy's room.

I got SO many nice comments on instagram yesterday when I shared this image. Honestly, the cutting is the easy part...designing this beauty takes skill though! That's what I need to work on next :) As I mentioned in my last post, I downloaded this template from here. I just enlarged it a bit so it filled an 8.5 x 11" sheet of cardstock. (You need to browse this blog - such lovely work. I adore Wynken, Blynken and Nod, Paper Moon (which would be an AWESOME starter project if you are hesitant to try this out) and these Zombie templates which I planned to use last Halloween but ran out of time on. This year for sure - and there are some other Halloweeny templates as well!)

LEFT I'll admit, this part freaks me out just a little // RIGHT finished and ready to hang
In situ. Just hanging in an out-of-the-way corner where she can't really get to it.
