The Kirigami Project - Week 21 - Leaves

I'm really excited to share this one with you... it's definitely one of my favourite so far. Inspired by leaves, the graphic symmetrical design is quite dynamic. I hope you agree!

The actual construction is quite simple - just a leaf shape filled in with slashes of negative space - but the final look is almost hypnotic.

To create your own kirigami leaves design, use the template below and the 4-point folding pattern.
