Little paper bird

I have just found this amazing picture of hundreds of possibility of folding paper and sewing. It's by Little paper bird a blog by Sarah Mitchell from Uk.
The following is what she wrote about her inspiration with paper.

I like this picture. I think its because it reminds me why I like making books, all the possibilities...I have a few boxes like this, from different times, when different ideas were running around my head, and when ever I feel a bit stuck or uninspired it often helps to take them out and have a play.
As the pages unfold it starts to come back to me; how paper can be manipulated, folded, bent and sewn; and my fingers start to get itchy to have another go at cutting, folding, stitching.I suppose its like kind of like drawing for me, seeing what shapes I can make with the paper. These boxes are like my sketchbooks. And I suppose its quite systematic, I often take one shape and try all the different combinations of fitting it together. I think its quite funny that these messy boxes, with bits sticking out and thread trailing, are really my attempt to create order.


I find it all very inspiring and a pleasure for the eye.

What a beautiful picture! It reminds me of when I was a kid, I'd stash all my "good" paper in a drawer to use one day on a special project. But I could never decide when a project was special enough, so never used my stash! Instead I did everything on the back of computer printouts. What a pity.
