Wash Your Hands Papercut Template PDF
Spend an enjoyable hour or so creating this gorgeous WASH YOUR HANDS YA DIRTY BEAST papercut template which I designed during early lockdown (April 2020) using gorgeously flowing brush lettering that even has little highlights to cut out and bubbles to arrange around the artwork. Read below for tips on how to papercut.
What you get:
x1 practise sheet A4 PDF
x1 A4 Wash Your Hands papercut template
x1 A4 Wash Your Hands papercut template (so you don’t need to worry about the grey edges!)
What you need:
Access to a printer
A scalpel – I use two, a swivel scalpel and a fixed blade, but it is trial and error. Please get in touch for any advice.
An A4 cutting mat (or A3, that will still work!)
An hour or so of peace and quiet.
How to cut your papercut template:
First of all you’ll need to print your practise sheet and the Wash Your Hands papercut template. I recommend printing onto 100gsm – 120gsm paper, anything heavier and it’ll start to hurt your fingers when cutting.
Make sure you have a self healing cutting mat. These are available in A4 and A3 sizes in most craft stores or haberdasheries such as HobbyCraft or The Range. I’ve linked to a few in this blogpost – How to papercut using papercutting templates.
You’ll also need a scalpel – these are as subjective as a favourite pen so I recommend trying a few (they’re not hugely expensive, only a few pounds) until you find one or two you get along with. Again, more about scalpels here.
Work your way through the practise sheet following the instructions that are printed on it. Then when you’re feeling confident get started on the Wash Your Hands papercut template. Again, instructions are on the template.
I just know you’ll enjoy cutting your papercut template
