We were having a look through the exhibitors at the Origin Craft Fair taking place at Somerset House in London this week, and came across these extraordinary cloud lampshades by Yu Jordy Fu. Paper cutting is an ancient and intricate technique, and it's pretty jaw-dropping in the usual two dimensions, but Jordy's work goes even further. We love the ethereal, dream-like quality of these pieces - they're amazingly delicate but brimming with energy and movent. See more of Jordy's work here.

As well as traditional paper cuts, Elsa makes exquisite paper sculptures, like this bee which Clare has been coveting for months. Each piece is individually cut and shaped before Elsa carefully assembles them, ending up with a little creature who looks like he's about buzz off in search of nectar. Check out all of Elsa's incredible pieces here.
