Grab a pair of scissors, a precision knife, a stylus, and some paper: It's kirigami time! With this book and kit, the ancient craft of cut-paper forms receives a thoroughly modern makeover that offers limitless possibilities. The guide instructs exactly how to fold the included colored paper, make careful snips and incisions, and open up the creations to reveal spheres, royal crosses, baroque swirls, Polynesian masks, honeycombs, and more. Then, follow the easy steps and helpful illustrations to build three-dimensional paper sculptures, like the Five-Pointed Star or the Autumn Leaves Doily.© 2013 Carlos N.

With the colored side of the paper up, fold the square in half (bottom to top) to create a large white rectangle. Bring corners A and B together and pinch to mark the center on the folded edge.
Place the rectangle on the Protractor Template (download attachment), aligning the pinched center with the protractorâ€™s center. Draw a light line from the pinched center to the 60o line and from the 120o line to the pinched center.
Fold corner A along the 60o line and corner B along the 120o line. The angle between the folding lines is 60o.
Transfer Pattern 9. Be aware of the folding lines.
Cut along the cutting lines.
Carefully unfold the paper to reveal the design.
