Flowering Love

8x10 Kirigami Bi-fold papercut, shown against red.
I am very excited about the new direction my papercutting is going. I have been experimenting with bi-folds or mirror images. Interestingly, a mandala (circular image cut from multiple folds) is more complex a design in the end yet takes much less time to cut. This bi-fold took three times as long to cut as a mandala of the same size. As you see, however, I can cut different shapes with this method: hearts, ovals, triangles, etc. Soon I will be listing some for sale on Etsy.
Commissions welcome.
