I recently did this custom order. It’s a papercut ketubah. The instructions were a bit open to interpretation so I tried a bunch of different things, including the couple’s portrait among other things.
The original design was a polygon that looked just about circular, but in the end we ended up going with a dome shape instead, which is very striking and a lot more interesting than a circle.
This ketubah is about 25” across, so it is BIG!
Registration was a big issue when designing this. Because of the large size, there’s no room for any errors because even one eighth of an inch causes a chain reaction that makes the entire design fall apart. I had to be very careful cutting between layers.
The best part was that the couple was a pleasure to work with. All their comments were very smart, well thought out, and helped guide me toward making something abstract in their minds into a real object.
