Muses Cut Up! ...Wycinanki


We celebrated the holiday season by creating Wycinanki's!  Wycinanki is the paper cutting craft of Poland.  The designs are created by folding the paper and cutting out the shapes from 2 layers of paper with an x-acto knife- you end up with a symmetrically balanced design.  The Polish like to do what they call the "tree of life" so we decided to adapt this idea and do Christmas trees.  We had a lot of fun.
