Beez Neez - The Very First One!

This is the first papercut I ever made. It was my overseas boyfriend's birthday and I was looking for something that inexpensive to make (I had the paper to hand) and cheap to post. So I made this and sent it to him. We have been married now for nearly five years and sometimes I tease him that I only married him and moved to the US to have the original papercut back in my possession! The cutting is pretty wonky and it hangs in a cheap plastic frame, but I think that's all part of it's charm. It is the only piece I have ever 'signed', with a JMH at the bottom. 

You can have a go a cutting it for your loved one too!
