This is a free tutorial on how to make paper cut-out cards. This project is suitable for children and grownups alike.
The idea of this paper cut-out card is very simple, but I think that the symmetry makes the cards look rather elegant. And as you can see in the photo above, the same design is on both sides of the card, but with the colors reversed!
As long as your card design is symmetrical, it will work! A heart for a Valentine’s card; a Christmas tree, a snowflake or a snowman for a Christmas card; a beetle, a butterfly, the face of an animal, or whatever else that special birthday girl or boy would like best on their birthday card…
When you hold one of these cards up to a light, you can also enjoy the overlapping outlines created by the designs on both sides of the card.
