Hello and welcome to

Chatani and/or Keiko Nakazawa and/or Takaaki Kihara. They are hand-cut using an X-acto
knife and a ruler. Check back from time to time for this page

Mr. Diego Uribe,
author of "Fractal Cuts" was kind enough to send me the
pattern for this card that I've named "Diego's Dream"
He was also kind enough to suggest that I put the pattern on this
web site so others could download it. So, if you'd like to
download a free pattern simply go
and print the page out.
On the pattern,
red lines indicate
valley folds and the black lines are the cut lines.
