Default [OT] These are amazing!

Remember folding up pieces of paper, cutting out diamond-shaped
holes in them, and then opening them up to reveal a snowflake, or
other symmetric pattern? Here's some art made by cutting things
out of paper:

And here's another one, with a very different approach:

Sweet! Some of them look quite simple and straight forward, but I'll
bet that's deceptive!

Now there's an idea: outsource the work to the Occupation Therapy unit!

Well, I knw I couldn't make anything as nice as these. And some of them
seem incredibly complex. The skeletons are so detailed!

What I also like is the empty space on the paper after the image is cut
out. The one of "skeletons in the closet" left a beautiful image on the
paper.
