Nicholas Rougeux made this fabulous Menger sponge fractal out of mini Post-its, which he swears by for erecting fractals:
Each Post-It was torn into 16 equal squares, then folded into units and assembled into the sponge.
Post-its offer surprisingly structural durability and are easy to get in large quantities making them ideal for assembling structures like these.

Guy sez, "This is my fractal generator and zoomer. The basic premise is I wrote a php program which will generate a fractal based on parameters passed to it and return it as an image to the browser. By calling this program with specific parameters a fractal can be generated that can be zoomed in on infinitely. The other link is a demonstration of the relationships between the Mandelbrot and Julia Set versions of the fractals. If you view the Mandelbrot fractal and then tile the Julia version you will begin to see the outline of the Mandelbrot version in the tiled Julia. This has been a lot of fun to write, I would love to take it a bit further and write some explanations and teaching tools. Please keep in mind that all the images are generated on the fly so if you do post this my server may go BOING!"
