Our papercut spring bird artwork is the second design from our Four Seasons cartridge. We created this cartridge for Cricut a while back and now we can finally share it with our members! The first design was our winter deer (illustrated by our designer Krista).
This pretty spring design is ready for you to download and cut! All you need is a simple frame and some paper. We got our 20″ x 20″ frame from IKEA and we used cardstock for the design and background.
This DIY project is a simple way to bring beautiful artwork into your home. You can hang this papercut spring bird artwork up separately or put all four designs together (winter deer, fall owl, summer fox).
If you decide to hang this piece of art on its own or place it on your mantel, you can always put a spring flower or plant next to it. For example, the one in the picture above is our crepe paper cherry blossoms. But we have other blooming branches you can make, too. This is a great way to spruce up your home with some spring décor!
When you’re ready to make this papercut spring bird artwork for your home, we recommend using a cutting machine. This is a really quick project for those of you with cutting machines. However, if you do want to cut this by hand, you can download our PDF template below instead of our SVG file. We alternated between a natural white colored cardstock and a linen textured cardstock. We also used foam mounting squares between each layer to give it a 3D look.
Just like the deer design, you can resize this artwork to fit a different size frame. And if you have any questions, let us know in the comments! If you love this project, the other two designs coming up soon are a fox for summer, and an owl for fall. Enjoy!
