Something to look at when you lie awake at night

Materials: “Tupplur” Rullgardin – Rolling curtain. Pencil. Paper knife. (Metal) ruler . Large cutting board, or a thick layer of cardboard on your table. Highlighter.

Description: 1. Put the curtain on the table.
2. Scroll to the part that you want to enhance with a cut-out silhouette.
3. Make a sketch of your design on the curtain with the pencil. Don’t forget this: parts of your design that are protruding upwards or sidewards need a connection to another part of the curtain/design to prevent them from falling over or hanging loose.
4. Highlight the parts to be cut out.
5. Cut them out.
6. Hang up the curtain.

    Very inspiring! I fear this is way too exacting work for me to do (I’m inpatient), but I would love to have this depicting the Chicago skyline on 2 side by side windows in our bedroom. Love this.
