The Chinese folk craft of paper cutting has been listed by UNESCO as a "masterpiece of oral and intangible heritage of Humanity".

This handicraft has been popular in the rural areas of North China for hundreds of years. This time, paper cutting of north China's Hebei and Shaanxi Provinces were packaged together to win the bid. In Hebei alone, two types of paper cutting were grouped together to represent the Hebei style of the craft. They are paper cutting of Weixian County and the Fengning Manchu style of paper cutting.
