Did you know? Wycinanki pronounced “Vee-chee-non-kee” is the Polish word for ”cut-paper design.” They often depicted scenes from daily life, such as weddings or holidays. Wycinanki are layered and all the different colours are pieces of paper glued on. Some cutouts were traditionally done with sheep shears instead of scissors.
