Happy Tuesday! This week’s tutorial comes to you courtesy of Lauren, who emailed me last week asking how to create a realistic paper cut out effect. With winter well on its way (my family in upstate NY has already had their first snowfall!), I thought a winter theme would work well with the effect. Do you remember these free hand drawn vector snowflakes from wayyy back? I thought it would be a good time to bring them back for this week’s tutorial and pair them with a more intricate snowflake to really show off the handmade look of this effect. I also happen to have a digital recycled paper pack and handmade paper pack which I thought would bring some nice authenticity to finish off the whole piece (pick up some free ones here). Read on to create your own!
