Cutting Window Shapes in Paper

Card Making Techniques

Sometimes in your paper crafting endeavors you might want to cut window shapes from your printed projects with scissors. If you have used office paper to print on, the paper is quite flimsy and cutting out the windows can make extra crumples and creases in it.

For projects children are going to make (and therefore they will be using scissors instead of a craft knife) here is a simple method to get around the problem.

Cutting Window Shapes
  • Slightly bend the paper (loose bend) and make a cut in the center of the window.

  • Make cuts to each of the corners from the center.
  • Cut along the window edges.

There should be minimal creasing and crumpling.

Happy Crafting! :)
