Loving Couples - Framed Kirigami Mandala

I cut this mandala yesterday using a new technique: a combination of a four- fold and a bi-fold. First I folded the paper four times and cut the outside design. Then I opened the paper and re-folded it once to cut the inner design. This piece is my first attempt at this delicate process. It is difficult to cut the center without tearing the already cut outer design.

This mandala is for sale, framed, at Shiretown Books in Woodstock, Vermont.
