These mandalas are on the cutting edge!

The rising popularity of paper craft will have you folding and cutting your way to beautiful decorations and art pieces. Lose yourself in the meditative process of creating unique models from paper and admiring the symmetry of these Tibetan mandalas. A cut above traditional paper folding, this craft requires a little more planning, but has inspirational results.

Tong Li Steinle, a Chinese paper-cutting artist, taught herself how to paper-cut at a young age. She grew up in Qingdao, China, and came to the United Staes in 2001. She had her first paper-cutting display in Broadmoor Library in Shreveport, LA, three years later, and she started her own studio in 2007. Today she lives in Amarillo, TX.
