  1. Wow! I’m imagining myself spending months on this, and then–when I go to photograph it–tripping and accidentally tearing it into pieces.

  2. These are amazing! So delicate.

  3. This is beautiful, and a great source of inspiration. This gives me all sorts of ideas for paper cutting.

  4. This is great! I love how delicate it is, like lace. Beautiful.

  5. Wow, that’s amazing to have that level of patience. Surely it’s not paper though? Card at least?

    For some reason I thought it might be white painted metal, but not sure how likely that is.
