    I'm wondering if there really is a 'universal consciousness'! I was looking for inspiration for subjects of my own white papercuts and found these great designs - and obviously so do others, as well as those who are creating their own! I love this site.

    I am just starting paper cutting and find these designs delightful. I especially like the deer and the tree chain. Thank you for sharing with everyone.

    Thank you for posting these! I was searching my basement looking for Scherenschnitte patterns (from my elementary school years!) to share with my girls since we are studying Germany. I have great memories of making these.
