Paper cutting has been a craft for many years in many countries all over the world. In Germany, the art of paper-cutting design is called "scherenschnitte," which literally means scissor-cuttings. It was a popular folk art in the 1800s, used to decorate birth and marriage certificates and even Christmas decorations.
