Step 1: How to Proceed--

This art generally uses one color against a dark background like brown or black. Painting is done using white color. It is very simple to cut the paper to make this design. You need a white paper (plain or tissue), card board paper, scissors and glue.

1. Take a square shape paper of any size you wish to make. I have taken a paper of size 10" x10".

2. Fold the paper into 1/8 size. Draw a figure of woman using pencil. Cut the paper in such a way that the hands and legs are tied up for all the folds.

3. Now open the folds and wow !! the 8 women are in a dancing circle.

4. To complete the scene, you can cut some more single images as well as hats and any other fancy items .
