Well, my advance copy is here . . . although the book won’t be available until January.  It’s called Paper Cuts and it’s a beautiful how-to book with project photos, directions, and patterns for 35 paper cutting projects.  Four of them are mine!
Publisher: Lark
Published: January 2010
128 pages
ISBN: 1-60059-512-X
ISBN13: 9781600595127
$17.95 US, $23.50 Canadian

I’m really humbled to be in the company img662of these designers, ‘cause all of the projects are beautiful and some of them are just incredible.  My submissions are relatively simple.  Hopefully, they’ll help get beginners started!  Here’s a sample page from the book, showing one of the projects I submitted.



I’ve also got lots of Scherenschnitte decorations and ornaments in my Etsy shop if you’re not ready to make your own.
