I think I have a new addiction! It's KIRIGAMI, which is similar to origami, using knife cuts, in addition to folding.
A search of Pinterest opened up my world to this topic. I found some amazing templates, which I was able to print on the back of cardstock. Doing this allowed me to cut on the back and reveal the design.
The one below is one of my favorites. It's supposed to be a pencil/pen holder, but I cannot help imagine Ida, the charming protagonist from the game Monument Valley, walking up and down these steps.
I found the template at the site below:
The card below is a castle that I found on YouTube. I love it because it's primarily straight cuts, only a few curved ones. Plus, it's a great pop-up card.
Give it a try!! It's really rewarding!
Have a great week!
