Paper-Cut Figure Kite

A kite created from a Chinese paper-cut.  Usually a bamboo frame and tail are added to the paper-cut with a simple bridle. This type of kite was made famous by Charlie Sotich. While Chinese paper-cuts are the most common, there are other styles of paper-cuts.

Tip of the week
Alligator clip tabletop picture holders make a simple helping hand to hold your kite while working.  Put a small piece of folded tag board or heavy paper over the edge of the kite where it slips into the clip to make sure the alligator teeth don't hurt your sail.
