The Use of Paper-Cutting

Paper-cutting, also named flower-cutting is one of the time-honored folk traditional craftworks. Chinese folk paper-cutting art originates from the” Carving Gold Piece”. As it develops to Han and Tang Dynasties, such a custom just was used for furniture decoration.

Traditionally, paper-cutting is mainly used for welcoming spring and celebrating spring. In the later months of year, local people customarily made paper-cuttings to paste onto the windows and much furniture, and it has been one of the essential steps to welcome spring.

Subsequently, the narrow use of paper-cutting in spring festival extended a large area related to the festive and celebration days. On the celebrations of wedding and birthday, paper-cutting is widely used to add auspiciousness and luck, and people call it Rite Flower and Luck Flower
