Papercuts

I work at a University which means I get nice long holidays at Christmas and Easter; I usually set myself a craft project or two which I might not get time for otherwise. Last Christmas I decided to have a go at papercutting. My three first (and only) attempts are enclosed below. I keep meaning to get my craft knife back out and have a go at some other images.
