Ansai County paper-cuts are beautiful things created by women in the northern part of Shaanxi Province. Their papercuts reflect lives that are full of love, sadness and happiness. Ansai papercuts have many forms and include almost everything in nature. In 1993, Ansai County was named the “Home of the Papercut”.

In Ansai paper-cuts are made using common scissors and the women who make them are so talented that they can cut the paper into any shape they can imagine. Before a festival or wedding, the women gather to cut paper to decorate the room.
