Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut;

cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami.

A difference between kirigami and the art of “pop-up” is that kirigami is made out of a single piece of paper that has been cut into a design.

Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as pentagrams and snowflakes.

It is an art that takes a true plan, a steady hand, and a piece of paper.
