The Kirigami Project


The Kirigami Project is a collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Each week in 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut. At the end of each month, there will be a free printable of that month's templates. This page will be updated weekly with the new designs and folding patterns.

The term "kirigami" comes from Japanese woods "kiri" meaning cut and "gami" meaning paper. Quite simply - paper cutting. Reminiscent of the paper snowflakes we made in school as children, kirigami can be a wonderful way to blow off a little creative steam without requiring much in the way of materials or making (too much of) a mess! Join us as we spend a year exploring this simple yet intricate art.

  2. I love that your designs are bold and graphic, not so "snowflaky." They remind me of Moorish tiles.

  3. It's so hard to choose a favorite design... I'm a fan of classic simplicity with a touch of the unusual. My favorite so far is week #5 the Heartflower. Thank you so much for the series. I look forward to the next post.
