Despite my Polish roots I have just discovered Wycinanki (Vee chee non kee), and I'm glad I did. Wychinanki is the Polish art of paper cutting. I guess I'm a pushover for symmetrical designs and bright colors because I find these designs so appealing, also a great way to teach symmetry and practice paper cutting skills with kids. There are lots of examples of beautiful Wycinanki designs on the net. You can find more designs at Inspire Bohemia.
If you would like a pattern to help you get started planning a lesson, you can find a pattern to make the multi-colored style Wycinanki like the one above from the Lowicz region by clicking here.
You can find the single colored style Wycinanki from the Kurpie region by clicking here.
