Chinese Paper Cuts -- Small Packs
These paper cuts are all handmade in China, where paper cutting has been a traditional folk art dating back to 105 A.D.
The pictures are carved from special, tissue-thin rice paper, then hand-painted with bright Chinese ink.
They are cut out in the inside as well the edges and thus stand-out against any background. Each motif is an unbroken, continuous piece.
These paper cuts can be used to create greeting cards, decorate photo albums, make bookmarks or design a poster.
Each set of paper cut has its own special design.

2. See-through bookmarks:
Paper cuts looked the same from the front and the
back. To make a special bookmark of floating picture, instead of pasting a
piece of paper cut onto paper, we can place it between two thick plastic
sheets, then seal the edges to make an unique bookmark.
3. Framed artwork:
Paper cuts can be pasted
onto papers, then inserted into picture frames. For example, the 7x11 in.
musical goddess design will look great for decoration. They can also be
used on see-through photo frames. Paper cuts looked the same on the back
and front, so they look great in frames with glasses on both sides.
Smaller paper cuts can
be used as frame decorator such as the one shown in the picture below.
Here, instead of putting the paper cut in the middle, we put it at the corner
and turn a plain photo frame into an interesting one.

Paste the paper cut onto a
piece of card paper and wrap it with clear plastic wrap. Tape a piece of
magnetic strip to the back, and it's ready to decorate your refrigerator!

a binder and proudly display your collection.
