How to Make a Kirigami Tree
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 make a three-dimensional Kirigami tree. And Kirigami trees, this particular one uses a special kind of scissors which is called the pinking shears. You see it has rough edges, zigzag edges on it and all you do is fold your paper in half and start cutting out your tree. And these scissors actually make the zigzag lines for you which is really nice.
And you want the leaves of the tree to get bigger and bigger as you go down. So I'm just going to go ahead and continue and by cutting and folding the tree I am actually making both sides at the same time. Now when I'm done cutting the tree, I'm going to take my regular scissors and I'm going to cut some slits in the tree as you see here. And I kind of round those a little bit. I want to be careful that they are not going too far to the end of the tree because I don’t want to cut my tree in half.
I'm just going to snip some lines up the tree trying to make them form in the middle of the different leaves that come out in the different branches. And when I open this up, then I'm going to start bending. I want to bend one back, leave one forward. The next one back, the next one forward, the next one back, the next one forward and the next one back. And when you lay it on your paper, that’s how you get that three-dimensional look. Isn’t that cool for our tree in Kirigami?
