Origami is a fun craft to do when you have instructions that are easy to follow. It is less frustrating for beginners when the instructions are simple, clear, and build on the skills.

The Craft of Kirigami: Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for my daughter by cutting the green Baroque swirls-square fold design in the center of this card using the Kirigami paper craft technique.
