Hello All,

My friend created Paper Cut ornaments with the theme of the famous song " The Twelve Days of Christmas" ( if that is the proper name. You know... "On the first day of Christmas my true Love sent to me'.......)

Each day from 1 to 12 in the song is represented on the tree by a hand cut paper ornament.

I will try to add some close-ups of some of the individual ornaments.

The tree looks short and pudgy ( portly ) because it is. I thought it was my lens but the tree looks as it is in the pics:

Hi Glyn,

Yes, my friend is very creative with many different crafts.

I added the first four days of Christmas to my gallery. They are all cut by hand:

Hello, Nicholas ...

What a wonderful series! Your friend is very talented (and very patient - LOL). I hope you will have a chance to pass on our appreciation and admiration of her skills, and a big "Merry Christmas" to her from your fans on the forum. Cheers! Ria
