The difference between Origami and Kirigami.

  • Kirigami: Japanese; Kiru means "to cut" and gami means "paper.".
  • Origami: Japanese; oru means "to fold", and gami means "paper."

Ordinary sheets of paper can be folded and cut into ships, animals, and flowers. Great, educational fun for children. All you need to get started is a pair of scissors, a piece of paper, a Scissor Craft pattern, a few quick folds, and voila  you've got an envelope, a basket or a wild african elephant.
