Kirigami Spotted Puppy Craft

Make this friendly Kirigami Spotted Puppy designed by the Free Kids Crafts Team and use your markers to make him special just for you. This simple kirigami project is a good introduction to other Origami and Kirigami crafts.


Kirigami is similar to origami in that it is a form of paper art. The major difference is that in origami, you fold paper whereas in kirigami, you fold and cut paper. By making curves and since the proportions of the folds remain the same, three-dimensional shapes can be scaled up or down from kirigami models into applications for everything.  Source: Design Development Media 2017 – a University of Oregon Architecture site – Kirigami
