    The hummingbird is beautiful. My husband loved it. Quality is good, the whole piece feels very solid and well built.

    I already had one of Cheong-ah's beautiful hummingbirds and I decided to add another one - and I'm so glad I did. The new bird is just as beautiful and delicately made as the first one but in a different pose. They look like like they're dancing playfully together in flight and imbue a lovely sense of peace and happiness. Cheong-ah's work never ceases to amaze me with all the painstakingly, intricate sculpture of the birds' feathers. She is a great artist and packages the birds super-safely for transport. Thank you once again for my beautiful birds.

    My little humming bird arrived safely and securely packaged. The work on the bird is so intricate and well-defined. Cheong-ah's patience certainly shows in the detailed way they bird is made and how the movement of the hummingbird is captured perfectly. It's so hard to believe that this piece of art is made from paper and I'm in awe of Cheong-ah's talent - would definitely recommend this to anyone who appreciates simplicity, nature and clever technique - it's truly beautiful. I would love to add another to my collection!

    My beautiful, little humming bird arrived in London safely and very securely packaged this morning, after a little hitch due to the postal delays. Cheong-ah is a wonderful artist and the pictures on the website give a flavour of how amazing this paper art is in reality. The wings are so delicate, each of the body feathers so painstakingly made and she captures the movement of the bird in flight perfectly - Absolute artistic talent. I needed to contact Cheong-ah re the postal delays and she always responded immediately and helpfully. I would not hesitate in recommending Papernoodle to anyone who appreciates such a beautiful art medium as this. Thank you so much once again Cheong-ah, I'm delighted with my little bird.
