Two Birds kiri-e

My sister suggested that I make a kiri-e for my parent’s wedding anniversary. To find a suitable pattern I went to Junkudo bookstore and checked all of their books on kiri-e, but mostly they were for kid’s patterns, or gothic lace. I’d mentioned back in October that I’d found one book called Utsukushi Kiri-e, and it had one pattern I liked. It took me about 3 solid days to cut the border and then glue in the colored construction paper. This is probably the most detailed thing I’ve made so far. Finished size is a sheet of A4 paper (8″x12″). I think it turned out ok.
