How to Make a Kirigami Sign for Spring
On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Sherie Tengbergen. I'm a professional artist with the WatercolorGourmet.com. In this clip I'm going to show you how to cut out the Kirigami symbol for spring. And I’ve already gone ahead and folded my stencil in half. And I’ve got a piece of red paper because the color red in Chinese is very important to the Spring Festival. And so I'm going to lay my pattern, which is on one side. And I'm going to get rid of all the black. So I'm going to go very quickly with my scissor and I'm going to remove all the black on this particular stencil pattern.
And again, the word Kirigami is a combination of folding like origami and cutting. I'm going to cut and allow this excess off of here just to make a little bit easier to get a good shape. So I'm going ahead, I'm cutting out all of the black. Once I had the outside, then I have to do a few little parts in the inside and then the symbol will be completed. And you can do this for all different kinds of symbols. There is a lot of them out there. You can get them off with the internet. It’s quite a lot of fun.
Paper cuts like this are used in China to decorate their windows for different festivals. I’ve got that part done. Now I'm going to cut up the centers. I want to get rid like I told you all the black. Here is one. I'm now almost done cutting out my symbol for spring here. There’s just one little black part here that I want to remove and I take out my pattern. I open up my stencil and this is now the symbol for spring out of red Chinese paper.
On behalf of TVLesson.com, this is Sherie Tengbergen and thank you for watching.
