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.

    so cute

    good

    WOW that pop up birthday cake card looks really good.

    Very nice result, thanks for sharing!

    Do you have any pictures showing how this is done?

    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.
