This 6 cm bee is a miniature paper sculpture designed and made by myself. For the making of this bee I arranged several little pieces of paper that I carefully cut with a sharp knife and scissors. I gave volume to the pieces by pressing them from the backside with a wooden tool. Then the parts were glued together with acid free glue.
