Hi.

I'm Sara. I'm on a quest for thrifty and creative home-making and hope I can inspire you join me.

Cut It Out

Cut It Out

There is so much beautiful paper-cut art out there but understandably it is expensive, after all it is someone’s (very time consuming!) labour of love. If you fancy the papercut look for your walls but don't fancy your skills or safety wielding a craft knife, then these stunning Rob Ryan lasercut greetings cards are super easy to frame as they are. Or buy any papercut or lasercut card and mount the front of it onto a piece of contrasting colour A4 paper and frame for bigger impact.

I loved these Rob Ryan cards so much that I used them to make candle jars for my wedding too. Any large Kilner jar works, and of course good old Ikea have their version, Korken, in various sizes. Stick the card to the outside of the jar obviously not the inside, I would not like to be the cause of setting fire to Aunty Nora's feather fascinator. I tried various methods of sticking them on but as always the hot glue gun won out!
