book review: cut it out by poppy chancellor

cut it out!: 30 papercut designs to cut out and keep* – £14.99

despite being a collage maker myself, i don’t do much of what most call papercutting. this is partly because i prefer scissors over an scalpel (for dexterity/grip reasons). typically i consider what this book covers as papercutting, but there can be a collage element in it too. they’re different skills too, and i really admire the huge amount of skill and time that goes into papercutting!
