Victorian Bench Made Out of Cardstock – Fun Paper Cutting

chair bathroom rose 018Several months ago I started working on a Victorian  bench paper cutting. I got a piece of card stock and drew off the seat, back, front and two sides with arms. I drew it in pencil. I used an Exacto knife to do my cutting. I always use an old piece of mat board to cut on, so I won’t hurt the table. Well, I finally finished it and forgot about it. I ran across it at school cleaning this week. I brought it home and where the folds are you score slightly and fold. To keep it together I used 4 tiny pieces of clear tape underneath. I can remove the tape and lay the bench flat again for storage. Fun and an easy art to do.bench paper 1bench paper 2
