Butterfly and Flower papercut in glass bell jar

I’m heralding in the New Year with a thing for Spring today (though I’m not really sure we’ve had Winter here yet).  I made it as well because I really like Victorian bell jars with little taxidermy oddities in them.

I’ve cut the butterfly from 150gsm Jet Black Canford paper and the flower from 200gsm white Fabriano eco artist paper and 300gsm black recycled card.  I’ve then lined the base of the bell jar with embossed vellum paper to finish it off.

Winter forest papercut in a miniature bell jar

I love dioramas, and I’ve wanted to come up with a papercut that I could set in a bell jar for ages now.  I also love winter woods, so I really enjoyed making this.

It’s been cut from 200gsm white Fabriano eco artist paper and 300gsm black recycled card.  The bell jar sits on a white metal fluted base and measures 8cm in diameter, 11cm high.

I’ve made a couple for a local craft fair at the end of November and I’ve also listed one in my new Etsy shop here.
