Students learned that this process is called kirigami.  Kirigami are usually symmetrical, such as snowflakes and is a variation of origami that includes cutting of the paper rather than solely folding the paper as is the case with origami.  Typically, kirigami starts with a folded base, which is then cut; cuts are then opened and flattened to make the finished kirigami.
