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
