in reverse order

since this is a blog, you have to go to the very bottom and read them in reverse order. eventually, there will be pages across the top where you can read chunks of information in a logical order. this is all free posting, so, maybe that is why it has to appear in reverse order.

Beginers - Lesson 2 - cut paper numbers & variations

 Here are some variations that you can try with your cut letters. The word layer was done using a decorative paper punch and scalloped scissors.

This alphabet first appeared in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine called Scrapbooks Etc. The magazine is still around. I was hired to do some "Etc" projects when the magazine first came out. I'll be posting all the different alphabets. None of them were with nibs and ink, but it's not a bad idea to learn how to make some of these kinds of letters because you could use them with your nibs and ink.

For example, you could cut out the first letter of a name and then write the full name with your nibs and ink.

if you have any sticky backed paper, it is much easier than gluing each letter.
