English: Chinese paper cutting or Jianzhi (Chinese: 剪纸, jiǎn zhǐ) is the first type of papercutting design, since paper was invented by Cai Lun in the Eastern Han Dynasty in China. The art form later spread to other parts of the world with different regions adopting their own cultural styles. Because the cut outs are also used to decorate doors and windows, they are sometimes referred to "chuāng huā" (窗花), meaning Window Flower.
中文: 剪纸中国最古老的民间美术之一,它的历史至少可追朔到公元6世纪南北朝墓葬中的动物花卉团花是现已发现的最早的剪纸,另外也有学者认为剪纸的前身可追溯到妇女使用金银箔剪成方胜贴在鬓角为饰的风俗
