Jewish wedding preview  About the Folk Art of Paper Cutting
Paper Cutting is a traditional folk art form that is found many cultures.  There is Chinese, French, German, Mexican, Polish, Swiss, and Jewish paper cutting.

Jewish paper cutting is many hundreds years old.  It is typically allegorical.  The papercut usually illustrates or interprets a quotation or an idea.  They are many times bisymmetrical and many times include writing.  Until the twentieth century, it was not unusual to see "colored" papercuts.  The artist might have used crayons, paints of all kinds, and ink to enhance the papercut.

Our invitations follow this tradition.  We will use many kinds of enhancements for our paper cut invitations.  The invitations are unique.
