The word Kirigami is Japanese; Kiru means "to cut" and gami means "paper.". The word Origami is Japanese; oru means "to fold", and gami means "paper."

Ordinary sheets of paper can be folded and cut into ships, animals, and flowers. Great, educational fun for children. All you need to get started is a pair of scissors, a piece of paper, a Scissor Craft pattern, a few quick folds, and voilà you've got an envelope, a basket or an elephant!
