Crazy woman with knife blades

You know I love knitting lace. Well, now I'm hooked on "paper lace" otherwise called serenschnitte. I printed a rough template then patiently started cutting away. Several X-Acto blades later, plus some stiff shoulders and a blast of spray adhesive, this lovely crest was ready to hang on the wall. I wanted to cut "2010" in the white band on the bottom, but my fingers were sore enough after finishing the rest.
You can see here how small the leaves are; those holly berries were the worst to cut out! I need to perfect my "round" shape cutting abilities.
