The Center of the Cross

<<by Melinda Creech, guest blogger for Lent>>

The next step in making the papercut banner is drawing the design out on the paper. I try to get most of the design drawn on the paper before I begin cutting. Tyvek is a little slick, so I have to use a very soft-leaded pencil to draw the line, but it erases very easily. A lot of erasing that goes on before I settle on a design.

The main element of the banner is a cross. The logo of the San Antonio Mennonite Church is at the intersection of the pieces of the cross.
