My favorite paper crafting technique...
... is another simple one, it would be fussy cutting. Fussy cutting (which stems from quilting lingo) is defined as cutting a specific motif or design from fabric or (in paper crafting) paper. I just love my fine tipped micro scissors and think there is nothing more relaxing than cutting into some gorgeous paper. It is also a great way to maximize your budget by making embellishments from patterned paper that you already have on hand.
Thanks Windy! This is a great idea.
