Great paper post! As that is all I have with me on my travels it was a good reminder not to just stay within the confines of a sketchbook!

These are gorgeous! It's important to play with your materials isn't it, I never do enough playing. I think you have inspired me!

I've always loved paper but in the last several years it seems to be a constant part of my life. Your demonstration shows its flexibility especially for 3D construction which I rarely consider. Hmmmm, some thinking is in order.
