A Paper Cutting Tutorial

Thanks for visiting today!

This week is all about paper cutting, the techniques of which come from this book.

After learning about the single fold and the double fold, let's learn about the layered fold. 

Start with a sheet of paper cut into a square. You can use origami paper or regular paper cut down to size. This one measures 5 inches by 5 inches.

Fold the paper in half and crease the center.

Fold again in half to make a smaller square; crease the folds.

Draw a pattern with a pencil.

Cut on the lines with precision scissors, then unfold.

This double layered fold produces a doily-like design.

Here's another one with flowers. TADA!

There's another technique of you come over tomorrow. See you then!
