Step 4: Cut the Bird!

Using the cutter follow the edge of the Bird and cut it out. Don't try to follow the edge of the Bird too precisely, but try to make natural edges. Sometimes it is easier to turn the mat in one or another angle to cut. Try to make sure you join cutting lines in corners. You can also correct this later, but think of it now...
Also make sure you don't forget to cut any edge that makes out the Bird!
<p>Cool and simple. I like this very much</p>
oh man what a fun project, I use birds in alot of my work so this totally suits me!
thank Yvonne - would love to see some of your birds for windowzoo!
These are great - an alternative to wheatpasting or stencils if you are upto mischief. I would be tempted to mess around with adding colours in there too but a strong black silhouette is probably more striking.
You got it TangMu!
For some reason.. I like it :) Very good documentation too ;)
Thanks trebuchet03 - we'll see how many people actually take the trouble... :)
