More about kirigami:

Kirigami (切り紙?) is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper (from Japanese "kiru" = to cut, "kami" = paper). It is also called "Kirie" (切り絵). From "Kiru"= to cut, "e"= picture.

Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut; cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami. Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes, pentagrams, or orchid blossoms.

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. Pop ups can be made of several pieces glued together.

Mon-Kiri is the Japanese art of paper cutting.

Nice design! Not sure why you used two thicknesses of paper - is that better than using thicker card? It must be difficult to get the layers to line up accurately.
