In the Studio Today... Holiday Art; "Kirigami"

Happy Holidays, Everyone! I am taking a break from painting to be with my family for a couple weeks, and wanted to share some snowflake Kirigami we made at a tree toast this month, and some "how to" information, so you too can have fun making some snowflakes this winter! Here is a page from a booklet I have from a kirigami kit (great holiday gift for all ages, btw... the kit is called, "Unfold the Secrets of Kirigami, by AITOH). Order kit online at Dick Blick Art Store...And... for some even more advanced patterns, here are a few additional links for inspiration:
•  Kirigami on Flickr  (by lizabubba)
•  Amazingly Ornate Scenes in Kirigami by Vermont Artist, Cynthia Emerlye

Have fun! Back with more painting in the new year.  Keep creating!
