    That looks amazing. Very good construction technique. Impressive results from the materials. How did you make the paper layer stack? Guing individual strips together one at a time or all at once soaking them in glue? Id like to try to make stack paper like that if you could give me a quick instruction on that. Maybe Im missing it in the reading.
