The description of Creative Kirigami Art

Kirigami comes from the word "Kiru" which means cut and "Gami" which means paper. This art is similar to Origami, but if Origami is a folded sei, while kirigami is an art of folding and cutting paper. The fundamental difference between these two arts is that on origami we fold paper to make artwork while on kirigami the paper is folded and cut to produce works of art.

Indeed, in China the art of cutting paper is not named kirigami, but all the patterns and ways of making it using scissors have been around for thousands of years.

In fact, during the Song Dynasty, around the 12th century crafting paper was used as a souvenir wrapping. This skill develops according to his time. Afterwards, the skill of cutting paper is actually used as a tool to know the prospective bride has hand skill or not.

Of course as one of their traditional cultural arts. On the way to China, the pilgrims are faced with handicrafts in the "Bamboo Curtain Country". Then there was mixing between the two.

The possibility of that happening because of the intersection between the two cultures is by bringing the craft into the country rising sun by people who go back and forth between the land of sakura and the land of China. It is probable that these people were pastors who went to China to learn Buddhism.
