Lockdown Papercutting Project Day 64: Orange Tree

Orange Tree #627

“Orange Tree” is from the ongoing papercutting challenge that I’ve been doing. (Basically I’m trying to work my way through all of the designs in the “922 Decorative Vector Ornaments” book by Dover Books.)

Today’s design is number 627 in the book. I have no idea whether those round things are oranges or not, to be honest, but I had to call it something.

Closer up:

Maybe it’s an olive tree? But in that case, those are big olives. It also looks a bit like a laurel wreath, but in that case, what are those fruits?

Even if it’s not a specific tree/fruit, I still like this motif. Basically I’m just a sucker for plant-based, Art Nouveau-type designs.

I enjoyed cutting this one, and I’m pretty happy with the result. There are a couple of bits that I’m tempted to neaten up a bit more, but overall I like it.

In the background today I’ve been listening to The Self Publishing Podcast. This show is so useful…all I have to do now is finish my book!

Do you know what the plant could be? Do you dis/agree that it’s an orange tree? Feel free to chip in via the comments page, or Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram.
