Kirigami as Radial Symmetry

Thanks to Ms. Hirst, a high school art teacher from Bloomington, Illinois, who is teaching radial symmetry to her students and is using paper snowflake cutting as an example. She showed her students my designs as examples. How fun! Her students find papercutting very therapeutic. "They are very quiet and focussed when cutting these mandalas.... Even the big bad football players love it."
Good luck to you and your students!
