Craft Scherenschnitte on Easter Eggs

      Scherenschnitte (German pronunciation: [ˈʃeːʁənˌʃnɪtə]), which means "scissor cuts" in German, is the art of papercutting design. The art work often has symmetry within the design, and common forms include silhouettes, valentines, and love letters. The art tradition was founded in Switzerland and Germany in the 16th century, and was brought to Colonial America in the 18th century by immigrants who settled primarily in Pennsylvania. 
      Below are links to those who apply scherenschnitte to Easter eggs. These lovely crafts would be just as impressive on either a Christmas tree or displayed in a cabinet or bowl for Valentines Day. In the near future I will be including a few of my own scherenschnitte patterns for Easter eggs below.
