Kirigami is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper; rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami. It is also called "Kirie".
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.
