Four detailed fretwork bird ornaments.

These bird ornaments are fairly detailed. They will require a #3 or smaller blade to successfully cut. You might also need a set of miniature drill bits to make the interior holes. Print the patterns out and plan your cutting strategy before you begin.

Take your time and cheat on the lines a little if you are unsure of the cut. What I mean by cheating is if you see a piece that is too delicate for your cutting skill level just cut inside the line and give yourself more room.

I plan to cut these for a Christmas gift. I am going to cut the set and mount them in a shadow box so they can be displayed as art pieces. I will probably mount two to a box because they are large ornaments.
