Hi there, I just found the world of Kirigami, and it looks very, very cool. Kirigami is the art of folding paper and cutting it, unlike Origami, which frowns down upon those who would dare to cut their paper. you've probably done Kirigami before, you know those paper snowflakes that you cut out of folded paper?, that is a variation of Kirigami. I decided that I better try it, it looks so cool once it's finished, so since it was my friends birthday, I thought it would make a really cool birthday card. here's some pictures.

basically I'm making pop-up cards, and it wasn't all that hard to make either, the hardest part was the cutting out since my printer only printed out half the lines of the pattern ( yes, I know, I did use a pattern, and here's the link to the site I got the pattern off of.)
so if you make some Kirigami models, post a link in the comments to the post and I'll have a look at it, cant wait to see what you guys will do!.
until next time,

thank you!, right now I'm working on another card that's a lot harder, and it just doesn't want to fold, but if I finish it I'll post some more pictures.
