For plant lovers who'd rather leave watering routines to the horticultural pros, allow us to point you in the direction of Barcelona-based paper artist and set designer Raya Sader Bujana's miniature paper plants. The little leafy replicas are so eye-catching you'll instantly want to lean in for a closer look at the details.
It's hard to believe what Bujana can do with only paper as a medium. In addition to creating art prints, she makes leaf necklaces, origami necklaces, cake toppers and terrariums, all of which can be found on her Etsy shop, Little Ray of Sunshine.
We're rather fond of her terrariums, which really stand out despite being not even an inch tall. We give the plant emoji approval to the Miniature Paper Cactus Terrarium and hand-cut and hand-sculpted Miniature Bright Pink Bird of Paradise Paper Sculpture Terrarium, both that stand at a not-so-steep 2.5 cm high.
Of her pint-sized artwork—which also includes a series of food, like latte art, pumpkin pies topped with cream, cucumbers, and watermelon—Bujana told Bored Panda, "I love creating as much detail as possible in the pieces to get as close as I can to reality using this medium. I also create stop-motion videos with a lot of these pieces that you can check out on my Instagram profile."
