I'm not really sure where to put these pieces, but I guess papercraft is the closest thing. I was inspired by some images found on the internet a long while back of an artist who works exclusively with 8.5 x 11 printer paper and makes these incredibly detailed 3D pieces from them. these are nowhere near as amazing as his pieces, but I thought I would try my hand at designing and cutting some of my own. I found thinking in 3D from 2D is a bit more difficult than I expected. But I liked the challenge.

(This first one is supposed to be of mice if you can't tell)

I think yours turned out awesome! I think the artist you may have seen is Peter Callesen, his work is so amazing. I gave it a try after seeing his work but it was a sad, sad attempt. Your work looks incredible though!

I love the clean lines and simplicity of white paper. It really does your cutting justice!

This is awesome! I think it's amazing you even attempted that--my mind can't wrap enough around it to even decide to give it a go. I love the mouse one!
