Summer Hanabi (fireworks) Kirigami
Collect any colorful scrap paper you may have. Get one black piece of paper (a square or rectangle will do) for your "night" background. Fold one third of the black sheet and then the other third. Fold the thirds in half. Draw (with a pencil) curved lines in a circular pattern to look like exploding fireworks. To cut out the small pieces, it's best to use a scalpel knife and cut out each curved line carefully. If you don't cutout the pencil marks, they can be carefully erased afterwards, or used as the back. Now that everything's cut out, it's time to open! Lay it out and flatten out the creases. At this point, you can hang it on a window as is, or create a collage of the paper scraps that you collected earlier. Overlay the black Kirigami cut on top of the colorful college and secure it with glue or small pieces of tape (double sided works best). Hang and enjoy your own summer "Hanabi" Kirigami! To change the look, try using textured paper colorful tissue paper or even translucent plastic to reflect sunlight. Play and enjoy!
