Finished this today! This piece combines the story of Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid. c:
So glad I finished this. I redid the round coral piece three times because I couldn't decide what color I wanted, and then ended up using all the colors together because I liked the effect. x'D I can't wait to move on to my next project. @ w@;; So many paper cutting ideas~

This original papercut has been painstakingly cut from a single piece of black paper using a scalpel. It depicts Cinderella's carriage on the way to the castle, with quote "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes When You're Fast Asleep" at the bottom. This papercut is mounted in the front of an 8"x20" black box frame, creating a drop shadow on the white backing paper.
I decided to make a paper bead series but I will only show different size and shape paper beads and not how to get started. In this tutorial I show how to start but if it's not detailed enough for you, you can go search for better instructions online.
Here I show a technique to make a paper bead more round by using more than one strip.
