paper craving



via Unicorn Diaries

So I have been a bit obsessed with paper sculpture as of late...
Maybe it's my inner seven year old who yearns for the days of paper dolls, cutting out those tiny little perfect outfits and folding the tabs and all that meticulous work that tiny little seven year old hands seem to be so good at.
I've always been really interested in paper (maybe it's because I'm constantly drawing on it), but I never really looked into the ridiculously huge range of creative projects done with paper.
Once I started looking, I really couldn't stop! These are just a select few of my growing collection...
I feel inspired to create some sort of paper sculpture. Maybe an old-fashioned doll house with little paper dolls for grown-ups who miss fiddling around with teeny bits of paper (although I'd hardly call myself a 'grown-up')...
Anyways. Stay tuuuned
