Twitter Design Competition

Last Friday we set a competition on Twitter to design an original papercut, based on your favourite song/lyric - the more inventive and imaginative the interpretation, the better! 
I have spent today reviewing all entries with Lou W and Julie (the PP admin team) and I am utterly gobsmacked by the talent there is out there! *runs away to join the circus instead* hee hee...
I thank you all so much for entering our competition. 
Massive thanks goes to Julie for helping run it, and a bigger thank you to everyone that took part. 
It shows me how much you love papercutting and I hope you've all enjoyed making these as much as we've enjoyed looking through your entries. It's been a right bugger trying to find our favourites. 
We've gone for a right mix from ones that fit the brief perfectly, to ones that made us go '"N'aaaw" and ones that really should be in a gallery... So - here are the results...!

We chose an overall winner between us and then each picked one runner up.

WINNER - @bellatilley.
For the cleverest, most amazing design!

Panda's runner up - @spooni_toon.
Awesome concept and totally different to other cutters - this should be in a gallery!

Julie's runner up - @annienaan.
Most unique interpretation of the brief.

Lou W's runner up - @kimbutlerdesign (on behalf of Kim's Mother-in-law).
Fantastic use of positive and negative space!

The winner gets a magnificent PP goody bag and each runner up wins a print of their choice. Please email your details to
