Kirigami - Folding and Cutting Paper

Since kirigami and origami are crafts that are very closely related, this page will focus on crafts that involve folding as well as cutting paper. The paper snowflake that we all might remember from our younger days, is a classic example of kirigami. Other types of kirigami crafts include pop-up or cut-out cards and all kinds of cut-and-fold books, boxes and other objects.
