I've been noticing a popular trend of these beautiful and delicate paper cuttings showing up in somewhat unexpected places....and I love it. Here's a small showcase of this art form, ranging from the contemporary to the traditional Chinese who perfected the craft. Hope to see more of these filigreed designs....the applications are endless, I think. Sources at the bottom, unless *ed- click * for link.
