Who likes paper cuts?

I sketched out a peacock with pencil and filled the edges with flowers and leaves. i then gently erased it and cut around it with an exact knife and scissor for less detailed parts. It took about 2 hours and i will never do this again.

Its great to attempt things once. Its a chinese art... paper cutting (not the exact term) but the chinese make beautiful works of art in mere minutes.

On the back side is names of all the different birds in the world (I'm sure i missed a few million)

This was fun. Won't do it again.

So who loves paper cuts? ... I don't
