Reading "Kirigami Paper Kingdom" by Karol Krčmár

Editorial Reviews
While origami is the process of folding paper into representational shapes, kirigami takes it a step further by using scissors to add details. By following the simple instructions and detailed illustrations, children can transform plain paper into original, 3-D projects of all kinds—dragons, castles, helicopters, ladders, masks, cards, and more. The difficulty of design increases through the book so that any creative enthusiast will grow in technique, with dynamic sunflower pop-ups just a few folds away.

About the Author

I'd never heard of that. That's really great. I guess there would be no end to all the great things you could create.
