{Happy Birthday}, Friend!


Today is my friend’s Sebnem’s birthday. Her partner asked me to make a custom map cutout for the occasion.

PaperCutWorks international! Sebnem was born in Ankara, Turkey & I took extra time to search for a nice map of this area & really like the one I ended up using. Hope she likes it!

    The placing of the word “Ankara” is so delicately and sensitively done. It feels embraced by the cutting. Nicely done.

      I’m so glad you noticed ~ before I make the map cutout I determine the placement of the geographical mark. In this one I also wanted to make sure to capture the word “Turkey” stretched across the map in addition to Ankara so I made sure to plan my cuts in a way that kept all those letters intact. Thank you for visiting again!

      Thank you! Yes, I had a lot of fun creating this one. It’s extra special when you create for people you know!
