Hi,

Thank you all for your reply (both via personal emails and this list). I'll
compose a summary soon to share all the wonderful ideas with you.

Just a quick note: yes, you can xerox or scan the papercuts, but they are no
longer papercuts anymore! :-) The essence of papercuts is the "cut" not the
paper! :-) (especially those delicate cuts, you have to handle it to believe
it!), Just as you can take a picture of a painting or of a beanie baby, but
the picture is not a painting nor a beanie baby. :-)

Thanks again,

Tina
