Artist Makes the Most Incredible Paper Flowers

Some artists use paper as a blank canvas; others, make art out of the paper itself. Meet Danish paper artist, Marianne Eriksen-Scott Hansen.

Known for her “paper couture,” Hansen makes ginormous paper flowers, using 50 to 60 layers of papers for each of her creations. Each of her elaborate pieces is made by hand and carefully crafted using scissors.

Since graduating from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1995, she has designed for huge brands like Levi Strauss and Georg Jensen. In addition to her work with industrial products, she makes spectacular hand cut accessories that have been adorned by Björk and Steven Tyler among others.
