Christmas Kirigami

Last month in my Templates Plus kit from Paper Wishes, I received a Christmas Kirigami.  I’d never done Kirigami before and it looked kind of difficult, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out I was wrong. Here’s my first card.


Not bad for a beginner.  I love the paper that came in the kit with the template.  It’s called Glimmer paper.  It is lightweight enough for kirigami and it holds its shape very well (Note the curved petals on the flower).

After playing with the template a while, I decided to branch out and make my own design.  Here’s what I came up with.



And here’s a close up.



See what I mean about the paper? It curled very easily and stayed put.
