“Mirla,” a little black paper cut bird by Diana Beltran Herrera
Bogota-based artist (and dreamer), Diana Beltran Herrera, has a lovely portfolio of paper cut birds categorized within the “Mathematics for the reality” series. From the Afrikkalainen Kutojalintu bird with a bright yellow belly, to the Cardenal, each bird is given a personality with color and textural help from the varying paper styles and cuts.
(more colorful paper birds and some dissections with views of anatomy too)

Moleskine® Star Wars™ : the origami battle

Moleskine has been branching out with paperless products in the past year, but they haven’t left out their notebooks in their attempts to draw in a new audience. To promote the new line of Moleskine + Star Wars branded limited edition notebooks, Moleskine creates a promo video of a galaxy battle with folded paper.

“The Classic Saga has furnished us with fantastic material to commemorate both sides of the Force. The Rebel Alliance and the Dark Side are portrayed in two dramatic designs, with the concept consisting of 4 notebooks divided between the Rebel Alliance and the Dark Side: 2 formats (Pocket & Large, both ruled pages) with the Rebel Alliance design, and 2 formats (Pocket & Large, both plain pages) with the Dark Side design. The striking covers have special metallic text, while the opening pages include quotes and space-scapes. Plus, a free full color poster is tucked inside the back pocket!”—Moleskine

The 'Finest Paperware' porcelain cup and plate by Rebecca Wilson

“…Consumption is increasingly more about having, using, and discarding  objects, rather than about acquiring and cherishing them. The disposable  paper cup is an icon of this trend in consumerism, and so here I have  created a range of paper-ware that mimics the Wedgewood style,  transposing the ceramic context onto the throwaway object.” —Rebecca Wilson
