|Kirigami is the Japanese art of making figures out of paper by cutting. This applet lets you create similar figures on your computer by cutting a polygonal wedge from a virtual piece of folded paper. You can change the regular polygon, your wedge, and your paper color. You can then see the figure that results when the paper is unfolded.|
