My daughter received these as a gift from her friend who lived In China for a few months. I think k they're absolutely beautiful (I'm far more impressed by them than my 7 yr old is... Lol).

What could I do with them? I thought a shadowbox would be nice but it would have to be huge to incorporate all the pictures, or I'd have to buy 12 small frames, which would get expensive & it would take up a lot of room on a wall. Also not sure how to prop the picture up so you can see it's cut out paoercraft. I'm not keen on putting them in a book of any kind, rather I'd like to find a nice way to display them.

Any suggestions (even outside of the box) would be very much appreciated!

Maybe you can make a paper lantern like this: https://www.oncewed.com/diy/diy-weddingwax-paper-lanterns/

You can put one image on each side or make several lanterns, each with its own image.  You can use electric tealight so the colors of the papercuts are accentuated, or just leave them as it as a pretty decoration.
