SUPPLY LIST for Papercutting Class

  1. Printout of the 8.5" x 11" pattern Jeanette will send to you after you register. Print the pdf on your home printer with your regular paper.

  2. #11 Hobby Knife and Blade. It does not have to be a name brand, but it should have a #11 blade. They can be purchased at Amazon, Staples, Target, Wal-Mart, and at most hardware stores. If you cannot find a hobby or Xacto knife, purchase a knife here from Jeanette (shipping included within the US).

  3. Piece of cardboard to put under your papercut while you are cutting (or a self-healing mat used for cutting fabric and paper). Cardboard should be thick enough to protect the surface of your table from the blade.

  4. Glue stick or Elmer's glue.

  5. Backing paper (any color you like) to go behind your finished papercut. Colored papers are available at the stores listed above. You can also use paint on white paper to create nice backgrounds. Jeanette will talk about background options during class.
