Intricate and gorgeous, this golden paper jungle by Johanna Burke is actually completely made of paper. The gorgeous display is for a luxury goods store located in Korea.

The meticulous details of all of the Venus flytraps, orchids, and passion flowers were all made with nothing but patience, talent and a trusty pair of scissors.
