while searching for more items that my silhouette could cut, i stumbled across this set of boxes/ paper wall art from a little hut. several of these fit in nicely with my style preferences, and a few of them even resemble some of my own designs (particularly the second one down on the right).
i purchased her paper quilt collection (a file set of nine), and spent an afternoon cutting, scoring, and taping before putting them above the mantle. the silhouette is actually pretty slow!
i didn't realize what a pain accurately spacing them out would be.
despite my best efforts, they still appear a little askew-- partially because of the slight curving on the sides of the "boxes". i decided i don't care.
overall, i'm pleased with the look, and since they were so inexpensive to make, i can always change them out for something else later or make some alterations as i see fit. i'm already contemplating removing my least favorite ones!
they can also be used as gift or storage boxes, so it's likely i will cut more in the future for those purposes.
