These stunning works of paper art by Chilean-born artist, Francisca Prieto, are gorgeous.

These wall hanging artworks are made up from hundreds of envelopes, meticulously cut and folded into intricate and interlocking forms. Fascinated by the delicacy and diversity of the security pattern designs inside envelopes, Francisca has transformed the ordinary life of this overlooked piece of paper.
