2016 Chinese Lunar New Year is approaching! 2016 is the year of Monkey. Chinese Culture Shop is working on a set of Chinese Zodiac Paper Cutting Art to celebrate the new year.
Paper cutting is the art of cutting varieties of designs on a piece of paper (usually red) with scissors. The paper patterns are often pasted on the windows, picture frames, or lanterns to express the feelings of joy and luck. The patterns are often designed from Chinese zodiacs, story figures, animals, flowers, and others.
Paper Cutting designs varies from simple to complicated. We would like to share with you some simple paper cutting tutorials so you can do-it-yourself and have some fun!
