      Noble Cousins!

      Greetings from Solveig! To add slightly to what Baron Edward
      said. Aside from musubibumi (tied letters) there was the
      practice of tying poems, fortunes, &c to tree branches. Also,
      noshi which are a kind of tied amulet dates to period and can
      be found in period kamon. As for either folded paper or cut
      paper art. You should not expect those until paper becomes
      pretty cheap. Paper was fairly cheap by the sixteenth century.
      If you go back to the Heian period, paper was fairly expensive
      if only because it also tended to be pretty fancy. You had to
      select just the right piece of paper for that day after poem
      you know.

      Your Humble Servant
