Cut and Fold

British artist Abigail Reynolds folds paper. And she does so like nobody's business.
As one who struggles just to get a standard sized sheet of paper folded and fitted into an envelope in a neat-ish manner, I can't even begin to tell you how impressive I find this.

And she does it all by using old bookplates and found images, folding and cutting and creasing, fitting them seamlessly together to sculpt an image entirely new.

Pretty cool, huh?
