What started out as a fun project between mommy and daughter has evolved into a viral sensation.

Four-year-old fashionista “Mayhem,” and her mother, Angie, have created a bevy of paper couture and posted the pictures to Instagram.

Angie told the Huffington Post that she suggested making a dress out of paper last year and her daughter took the idea and ran with it.
