Kirigami Butterfly Card

When the card is standing the butterfly is bent over looking as though is fluttering down to check out the flower. I thought it was a clever idea – but it is not my idea! I found it in a book on Kirigami by Karol Krcmar. Kirigami is a form of Origami that involves cutting the paper as well as folding it. A great version of this paper craft for children as it enables a lot more flexibility.

We also crafted another Kirigami piece, a Kirigami Wind Crown.
