Rediscover Old World Papercrafting! Scherenschnitte, which literally means "scissors cutting," is a lovely old Swiss-German folk art tradition. Pronounced share-en-schnit-ta, this venerable technique was introduced to colonial America by the "Pennsylvania Dutch," who applied it in intricate and symmetrical designs on marriage and birth certificates, silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. Now Paper Cutting Old & New makes this ancient craft come alive, with easy step-by-step instructions and complete full-sized patterns for snipping your own framed treasures, holiday ornaments, unique cards, scrapbook pages, and much more. Add a touch of old-fashioned elegance to your art, with easy-to-follow instructions for false-grain painting that will turn even the plainest frame into a conversation piece. "Paper Cutting Old & New is a wonderful addition to the dissemination of the Pennsylvania German culture. This publication successfully introduces in a clear and concise manner an important piece of history to the modern crafter who wishes to be a part of a long running tradition." Jennifer Royer, Museum Curator Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum Lancaster, Pennsylvania
