Another book we love is Kirigami Menagerie, 38 Paper Animals to copy, cut and fold. It’s terrific! Kirigami is a combination of two Japanese words. Kiri means “cutting” and gami means “paper.” Simply photocopy the templates onto the paper of your choice, cut the image out, score along the dotted lines, fold and viola! The instructions are east to follow and you’ll fall in love with every animal you complete. Most of the animals are strong enough to stand alone, the flying ones require twine to hang. All you need is a little practice and in no time you will be able to turn a piece of paper into a 3D animal!
