How to Cut in Kirigami

After you print the template you will notice that there are 3 types of lines, solid, dotted and dashed.
  • Solid lines should be cut all the way through the paper. 

  • Dotted and Dashed lines indicate scoring marks (cutting only about a 1/3 of the width of the paper) in order to weaken the paper and help bend it in the correct direction.

Dotted lines (…..) indicate mountain folds and therefore the scoring should be done on the front or white side of the paper.

Dashed lines (-----) indicate valley folds so the scoring should be done on the printed or backside of the paper.
