Cut Paper Art: Cilantro

Do-Something-Everyday, June 9, 2016

 I picked up a bunch of fresh green coriander (also known as cilantro) while shopping for groceries. Coriander is heavily used in Indian cooking in pestos, sauces, dips and, as a garnish. Their fresh smell inspired me to make this paper cut.

The evergreen magnolias (magnolia grandiflora) have started blooming. This one was really huge. Each petal was about 4" wide. The petals are creamy white but in some light they look pale white. They don't make good cut flowers. Better to enjoy them them on the tree. The petals are so gorgeous that I am thinking of making a paper version of them. I think they will come out well with crepe paper. Will see.

Thanks for visiting. Linked to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eve and Kristin for hosting.
