This is still a collaboration work in progress… I made the frame out of an old wire coat hanger and black tape. The fringes are made from “iron beads”. Each fringe has a different theme and some are made by friends and family or all ages 🙂 It even has some glow in the dark areas!
Kirigami means cutting paper in Japanese (kiri = cut, gami = paper).
It’s a fun and easy activity to do with children and you use them for decoration or glue them on to paper or card, etc.
You can also use the cut out pieces for something!
Sometimes I like to make one where the kirigami is based on, for example, my whole life and each cut represents an event or relationship. Then the folded part represents your life in time and the opened pattern represents your life in eternity. Other ideas to try are things like just one day, a relationship or an idea!
