To Mitsuhiko Imamori, nothing is more fun than grabbing a pair of scissors and participating in Kirigami. With little more than some paper and a trusted pair of scissors, all sorts of beautiful papercrafts can be made by folding, flipping, and ultimately cutting sheets of paper.
Everyboday Kirigami! brings the joy that Mr. Imamori has experienced teaching kirigami in Japan to a Western audience. The concept is simple: transform a simple sheet of paper into a piece of art by folding and cutting. Imamori's patterns can be used for their functionality, by utilizing them with cloth for appliques, cutting into fabric or vinyl for decorations and for design use in the realms of book binding and card making.
Featuring 72 designs and a range of different cutting techniques, crafters can make their own cutouts for display, decoration, or embellishment. Once they've mastered the basics, Imamori provides ideas to help crafters come up with their own original projects.
Everybody Kirigami comes with 30 pages of ready-to-fold-and-cut patterns, on both craft paper and delicate Japanese rice paper, along with dozens of stencils to quickly get eager crafters going!
