As one of the most popular folk arts in China, paper-cut can be traced back to the sixth century. Paper cutting is the product of small-scale peasant economy, which is produced in the life of the working people and is an important branch of Chinese folk art. Guangxin's paper-cut patterns are rich in shapes and connotations, highlighting the rich paper-cut cultural characteristics. This paper looks forward to the continuous innovation of Guangxin paper-cut patterns in terms of its historical culture, categories, visual characteristics and other aspects, which are more in line with modern aesthetics, so as to be more widely inherited and disseminated.
