It's our first anniversary tomorrow which is paper, so have made a paper cutting for him. I'm super excited and want to show him NOW but I can't. It's pretty much plagiarised from one I saw on notonthehighstreet but they'd stopped making. Plus I couldn't afford to buy one even if they still did it... It's my first ever attempt at doing something like this and took me HOURS (and a sliced finger) and I'm ridiculously proud of myself grin.

The words are from 'our' song. He's a soppy git so I think he'll love it but I'm a bit worried he's going to look at it and be like wtf are you giving me?

...although having just doubted myself and had a quick google, apparently paper is in the US and it should be cotton in the UK. Woops blush. I won't tell him...

Gorrjiss. Happy anniversary.

I thought paper was one year! I think cotton is second (at least, going by the presents my sister and her husband got each other for their wedding anniversaries.

It's really lovely, really clever! Well done you!

That's really lovely. Are you taking orders, now you have got the hang of it?

I did paper cutting at an hen do earlier this year and it is HARD. I am really impressed especially with the text. You should be really chuffed with yourself.

It looks great well done.

That is beautiful, I'm sure he'll love it. I also tried paper cutting at a craft party since and it was unbelievably difficult to cut without the angles looking all jerky, so you're very talented.
